Islamic Studies

About the Islamic Studies Program

The Islamic Studies Program is part of the Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies.

Over the past decade, knowledge of the Muslim world—of its inter-relationships and international connections—has become more important as the Western World attempts to constructively engage with its 1.4 billion inhabitants. Students wishing to pursue work that focuses on Islam and the Muslim world need a wide range of skills and experiences to be competitive in post graduate education, private business, nongovernmental, and governmental careers.
