The institute of North American and European studies was founded in 2004. Following its popularity among students, it became an independent faculty offering courses on more and more countries around the world.

Originally, the faculty only offered programs in 8 fields, when it first began operating in 2007. The programs included courses on North America, Britain, Russia, France, Latin America, India, Germany and Iran (only offered to International Students).  The faculty has recently started offering programs on Arab countries such as Egypt, Iraq and Palestine as well as Japan and some African countries.

We are the only faculty in Iran that offers graduate programs focusing on studying different countries with inter-disciplinary approach.
