Institute for the Study of Muslim Societies & Civilizations

Ongoing world events have sparked an acute interest in the study of Muslim societies. The Institute for the Study of Muslim Societies & Civilizations desires to foster a better understanding of those societies and to preserve their diverse heritage. The two Muslim Studies minors offered in the Pardee School of Global Studies take an interdisciplinary approach that exposes students to Muslim societies’ historical, religious, anthropological, political, linguistic, and cultural characteristics.

Members of the College of Arts & Sciences humanities and social science faculty offer a broad range of courses focusing on the Muslim societies and civilizations of the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. The website for the Institute for the Study of Muslim Societies & Civilizations provides a list of relevant courses and their descriptions for the current semester.
