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.
The minor in Islamic Studies was introduced in Spring 2016.
All courses must be taken for letter grades and receive a grade of C- or higher.
