Academic Programs


The Center's interdisciplinary program serves undergraduates who wish to emphasize Arab and Islamic studies in their education. The course of studies enables students to add an Arab and Islamic dimension to their understanding of international issues and world cultures. The program also prepares students for work in government or business related to the region and for advanced graduate studies.

Please contact any of the faculty in the program for more information; applications for becoming a major or minor are available in the Department of Global and Interdisiplinary Studies (Garey Hall Rm 36).
