The Islamic Studies Program is the University of Delaware's window to the Islamic world. It offers students a minor with and without language (Arabic). The Islamic Studies Program is interdisciplinary and introduces students to the politics, history, anthropology, sociology, arts, and languages of the Islamic world, as well as the global growth of the Islamic economy. In conjunction with the excellent study abroad programs offered by the University, students can visit some of the most exciting and interesting places in the Islamic world. Turkey, Malaysia, Tunisia, and the Muslim diasporas in Paris and London are just some of the places where students can go to experience Islamic culture.
The Islamic Studies Program is also a forum for an ongoing and highly enriching dialogue of civilizations between Islam and the West. Students will join with many speakers and scholars of the Islamic world in engaging dialogues that will open new vistas in their outlook toward the world.
The current Islamic Studies faculty comes from the Departments of Anthropology, Art History, English, Foreign Languages & Literatures, History, Philosophy, Political Science and International Relations and teach a wide variety of courses which address the people, religion, history, and culture of Islam, spanning from the Middle East and Africa to Southeast and South Asia, and from Europe and America to Muslim Delaware.
