Qatar University attracts world interest with new 'Gulf Studies' programme
A new course in Gulf studies, the first of its kind
in the Middle East and only the second in the world, has been
launched in Qatar University, the national university of the Gulf
state of Qatar.
The Master's programme in Gulf Studies at Qatar
University comes at a time when the world's gaze is increasingly
becoming focused on this region, as tensions in the Middle East
continue into a second year and Qatar enhances its international
profile as an often outspoken state.
The two-year full-time programme is designed to provide students
with an advanced interdisciplinary understanding and in-depth
knowledge of issues related to the states of the Arabian Gulf.
Courses covered in the programme relate to heritage, society,
politics, economics, the environment, media, international
relations, and the energy industry of the Gulf. The programme is
also offered on a part-time basis for those currently employed.
