About Contemporary Asian and Middle Eastern Studies at University of Tartu

Asia and the Middle East are two of the most fascinating and rapidly developing regions of the World, creating challenges and offering opportunities for the 21st century. By 2050, close to 60% of world’s consumers will live in the region, China will be an indisputable superpower, Hindi, Bengali and Urdu will dominate much of the world business, Islam will change and diversify due to its contact with modernity, and migrantion will continue to put pressure on the Middle East.

We provide a comprehensive curriculum in Asian and Middle Eastern economies, politics, languages and societies, a flexible and personalised study plan, and a multinational study environment.
