Contemporary events dramatically underscore the profound significance of Islam, and the urgent need for a better understanding of global Islam and the Islamic World. Islam has not only become an important force in the global cultural, political and economic spheres, it has become a crucial aspect of the American and Western experience due primarily to the growth of Muslim communities in the West. The minors in Islamic Studies and Islamic Studies with Language are designed to empower students with knowledge of Islam and the Islamic world.
Islamic Studies is an interdisciplinary program for students wishing to focus their interests on Islam and the Islamic world as an enhancement and complement to their undergraduate majors. Students have two possible options: 1) a minor in Islamic Studies without language or 2) a minor in Islamic Studies with language (Arabic).
