he University Center for International Studies now offers a Certificate in Mediterranean Studies at both the undergraduate and the graduate level. A certificate in Mediterranean studies provides Pitt students and faculty with the institutional support and organizational structure to examine issues and themes across the Mediterranean world over a broad chronological span – from Antiquity to the present. The interdisciplinary certificates offered by the European Studies Center contextualize the ideas of Mediterranean cultures past and present and examine the influence of those ideas outside of the region.

Students are invited to meet scholars at Pitt who engage with the Mediterranean region in the teaching and research. What are the big questions that arise for people interested in the Mediterranean as a region? How do these questions cross disciplinary boundaries? What kinds of topics do people at Pitt study that leads to engagement with the Mediterranean? How does the region intersect with other regional or global approaches (European studies, African studies, Middle Eastern studies, global studies, the Islamic world, etc.)? What languages can Mediterranean Studies students take at Pitt?
