The Program in Islamic Studies‘ minor 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 complexity of the world’s second-largest religion.
A new course, Ethnographies of Iran, was recently cross-listed with Islamic Studies with a new meeting time. This seminar covers a number of important topics such as revolution, gender, art, literature, and religion. We will read ethnographies, novels, and watch a few feature films and documentaries. Find out more about the course on SIS.
