The Center for Arab and Middle Eastern Studies was established in 1972 alongside the Shaykh Zayid bin Sultan Chair in Arab and Islamic Studies. From 1975 on, the Center’s activities were restricted and in 1986 it closed down completely along with several other graduate programs at AUB. In 1997, CAMES was completely reorganized and began receiving applications for the MA program the following year. The first intensive summer Arabic program took place in 2000.
