The Arab and Islamic Studies Minor requires 15 credits:
The Center for Arab and Islamic Studies is developing its study abroad programs in the region and is currently offering program in Jordan, Egypt, and the Gulf States. We strongly encourage study abroad for at least a semester.
AIS is committed to student and faculty learning. So the Center organizes lectures, film series, conferences, discussions, and outreach programs for the University and the Greater Philadelphia communities, in addition to hosting academic seminars by well-known scholars.
These programs are open to students in all colleges. They provide a background for advanced professional studies, for personal enrichment as well as for careers in government or business related to the Arab and Islamic worlds.
