About the Program in Islamic Studies
The Program in Islamic Studies at Johns Hopkins University is dedicated to educating students and promoting understanding about Muslims and Islam in historical and comparative perspective. We support a cross-disciplinary perspective that spans history, anthropology, sociology, philosophy, literature, the history of science, the history of art, Near Eastern studies, and other fields.
The minor in Islamic Studies is open to all undergraduates regardless of major. It provides the intellectual and linguistic training to approach Islam — and the world — in a historically and culturally informed way, challenging stereotypes and misconceptions while exploring the diversity and complexity of the world’s second-largest religion.
