Islamic World Studies Minor
Loyola's Islamic World Studies minor introduces students to the Middle East, the birthplace of Islam, and the Islamic civilization. The minor offers a unique opportunity to think differently about the Middle East, Islam, Muslim societies, and their influence around the world. Through a rigorous interdisciplinary approach, students explore history, culture, politics, and religion in Muslim societies in a variety of regions including the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa. Students are strongly encouraged to study abroad in a Muslim country and enhance their academic knowledge through real life exposure to Muslim people and cultures.
