Possibilities for joint concentrations exist and are welcome in NELC. The Department has a joint concentration with the Department of History. For joint concentration with other Departments, the student must make a case for it to both NELC and the other department or program concerned.
Joint concentrators take four terms of a language, the sophomore and one junior tutorials, and at least one other course in Near/Middle Eastern studies, in addition to a senior tutorial in two terms focused on the writing of a senior thesis that combines the two fields. As for undergraduate students with advanced standing, they have the option of applying for a joint A.B./A.M. degree. More details about these and other aspects of the NELC concentration are available in the NELC Undergraduate Concentrator's Handbook.
