The Middle East and North African Studies (MENA) minor offers students the opportunity to explore diverse aspects of this region from an interdisciplinary perspective. The program is anchored in core courses that focus on culture, religion, and politics in North Africa and the Middle East. Minor students typically enroll in Arabic language courses and also pursue a range of electives across the humanities and social sciences. The Lewis & Clark overseas program in Morocco provides opportunity for students to extend their studies and learning experiences within the region. The minor culminates with a capstone project that encourages students to integrate their minor with other facets of a liberal arts education at Lewis & Clark.
