Center for Contemporary Arab Studies
The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) is the only academic center in the United States focusing essentially on the Arab world--the region from Morocco to the Gulf. It has been doing so with distinction for over 30 years. The Center's Washington, DC location provides access to government, the non-governmental policy-studies community, the media, and business as well as academia. Attendance at its public events and applications to its distinguished Masters Degree Program in Arab Studies (MAAS) have more than doubled since 2001.
