Hello, and welcome back to JustAnswer!
If you pursue a B.A. in Middle Eastern Studies, you could most likely become a teacher of History, World History, or of Middle Eastern Studies; however in order to teach this subject (Middle Eastern Studies) in a college or University, you would need at least an M.A., as well. If you should decide to study Middle Eastern languages, you could seek a position as a translator or interpreter.
A B.S. in Legal Studies, in my opinion, would be more useful and lucrative for you, regarding finding employment after you graduate. You could study to become a paralegal, legal assistant, or pursue a position in law enforcement, if this appeals to you. While interning and/or working for a lawyer or legal firm, you might choose to further your education and become a lawyer, yourself.
Whatever you decide, I wish you much good luck in your future endeavors.
