Mediterranean Studies Academy

Welcome to the Mediterranean Studies Academy

With members from three colleges, the College of Arts & Letters, the Jack Brown College of Business and Public Administration, and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, we have four goals. First, we seek to deepen student learning about the Mediterranean. The study across disciplines allows our students to make meaningful and provocative comparisons between regions of the Mediterranean and to reflect on developments and movements from antiquity to the present. Second, we seek to enrich student learning and campus life by partnering with the the Center for Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies (CIMES) and the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art (RAFFMA). Third, in our partnership wiht the Center for Global Management, we support and offer study abroad in the Mediterranean. Fourth, we seek to promote faculty research and scholarship because expertise and currency in our disciplines informs and elevates classroom instruction.  

The Academy was established with the Teaching Innovation Grant of 2016-17 offered conjointly by the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration and the College of Extended Learning,
