About the course

Bridging the Modern With the Ancient

The MA degree in Islamic Studies offers an insider’s perspective of Islamic tradition as a religion, a civilization, a culture and a political force. Unlike other Islam programs, the degree incorporates a historical component, whether focusing on classical texts or modern Islam.

The curriculum is constructed with this dual focus in mind: Students are immersed in core religion courses to provide a grounding in the history of Islam, but they also are exposed to courses in history, political science and international affairs to gain insight into current politics, society and cultures of the Islamic world.
