Muslim Studies Program

The Muslim Studies Option offers:

  • An interdisciplinary/multi-disciplinary approach to the study of Islam and Muslim societies that integrates perspectives and methodological approaches from both the humanities and social sciences.
  • The study of the historical, philosophical and theological development of Islamic thought and traditions as well as contemporary sociological, political and cultural contexts of lived Muslim experiences within a broad geographic context that incorporates a global, transnational as well as local focus.
  • An emphasis on an integrative analysis of Islam and Muslims from historical, scriptural, philosophical, cultural and gender perspectives that inform the contemporary global relations between Muslims and non-Muslims.
