Focused on explorations of France, Spain, and Italy, the MA in Mediterranean Studies will allow you to combine study in a primary and a secondary language as you explore the history and culture of this diverse, vital, and influential region.
The MA degree consists of 11 course units (five in one language, six in a second language) to be taken in a combination of summers in Vermont and semesters in one of the C.V. Starr-Middlebury Schools Abroad, and one independent research paper worth one unit of credit in one of the two languages studied, for a total of 12 units.
The MA in Mediterranean Studies will enable students to develop insight into the history and culture that have shaped a vital region, helping them to interpret and address the complex issues of today's world in the age of globalization. This innovative program is designed for students seeking a career in International Affairs, Economic Development, Diplomacy, Politics, Economics, Journalism, or Education.
NB: Applicants to this program must be at the graduate level in both languages and will be required to take the graduate placement exams and oral interviews in both languages. They will have to demonstrate an advance proficiency in both languages.
