Islamic Studies Program

Welcome to the Islamic Studies Program

The Islamic Studies Program advances critical research about Islam and the Muslim world and facilitates access to knowledge in the field for students, scholars, professionals, and the general public. The Program designs and supports curricular and collaborative initiatives and assists faculty and students in developing research projects that focus on the rich diversity of Muslim history, politics, culture, thought, and practice. Relying on extensive faculty resources and on Indiana University’s unrivaled reputation for profound linguistic and cultural training, the Program offers opportunities for the study, exploration, and better understanding of Islam and Muslim peoples and practices around the world.
