Welcome to American University of Beirut's Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud Center for American Studies and Research. CASAR is dedicated to increasing international understanding primarily by increasing knowledge of the United States in the Middle East. CASAR pursues this goal through interdisciplinary teaching and research in American Studies -- focusing through a broad range of issues including the historical, cultural, and political issues -- and through outreach efforts such as conferences and public lectures. The Center's efforts are continuously evolving. It currently offers a Minor in American Studies and a MA in Transnational American Studies.
