For more than a half-century, the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area studies at Yale and its precursors have served as the university’s focal point for teaching and research on cultures, languages, societies, institutions, and practices around the world. It draws its strength by tapping the interests and combining the intellectual resources of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the professional schools. It offers six undergraduate majors: African studies, East Asian studies, Latin American and Iberian studies, Modern Middle East studies, Russian and East European studies, and South Asian studies. At the graduate level, the MacMillan Center provides three master’s degree programs: African studies, East Asian studies, and European and Russian studies. The MacMillan Center also sponsors four graduate certificates of concentration: African studies, European studies, Latin American and Iberian studies, and Modern Middle East studies.
