(15 UNITS)

SWANA (Southwest Asia and North Africa) is a geographical term that distinguishes the region often referred to, from a Western lens, as the Middle East. While the boundaries of the region remain unfixed, it is commonly understood as the area stretching from Morocco in the west to Afghanistan in the east and from Turkey in the north to Yemen in the south. The Southwest Asia and North Africa (SWANA) Minor allows students to learn about the religions, histories, cultures and languages of the SWANA region.

All coursework may not be completed in a single department. Some courses have prerequisites; check the course descriptions for more information.
