• Welcome!

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The mission of the SOAN degrees offered by the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Media Studies is to make students aware of the different contributions of anthropology and sociology to an understanding of the worlds we live in. The aim is to train students in the conceptual, research, and applied tools of these two components. Through independent, critical, and advocacy fieldwork, attention is given to the historical and cross-cultural heritage of Arab society and its relation to the rest of the world.​
