495. Senior Honors Thesis. Open only to Honors concentrators with senior standing. (3-4). (Excl). (INDEPENDENT).

To be taken in the senior year by students in the area concentration program on Middle Eastern and North African Studies who have been admitted to the Honors Program. Two to three advisors should be chosen; the principal advisor will be a member of the faculty in whose field of expertise the thesis topic lies.

520. Bibliographical Resources in Middle Eastern Studies. (1). (Excl).

This seminar course introduces significant bibliographical resources in print and electronic format for the study of the Middle East. The course covers the bibliographical organization of the disciplines of history, language and literature, politics, economics, and sociology, religion and philosophy, and art and archaeology within the context of Middle Eastern area studies. The students discuss, evaluate, and use the bibliographical tools introduced in the course. Many students lack knowledge of the bibliographical resources in the disciplines and are inadequately prepared in the use of them. An introduction to these resources, accompanied by assigned work in the use of the material helps students overcome the difficulties in locating and organizing research materials.
