 Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies (University of Sydney)
The Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Sydney has an established program which offers a well-integrated curriculum at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, combining units of study on Arabic language and literature (ARBC) with units on Islam and the societies, cultures and politics of the modern Arab world and the Middle East (ARIS).

Whether you are interested in learning Arabic for basic communication skills, or in order to use it effectively in business, education, law, health, media, translation or community work, we have appropriate Arabic courses for beginners as well as for post-HSC Arabic students. Any student can take units on the Arab world, Islam and the Middle East (tuition in these ARIS units is conducted in English). Combining ARBC and ARIS units will give students a strong foundation of expert knowledge of the language, history, politics, society and culture of the Arab world and Islam, and of the Middle East as an important region in the modern world.

Center for Islamic Studies at the Graduate Theological Union
With the academic and religious resources to offer a distinctively inter-religious and interdisciplinary approach, the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) founded the Center for Islamic Studies (CIS) in 2007. The center is building an academic platform to help scholars and students of many faiths learn about the richness of Islam and the diversity of Muslims, and emphasizes study and dialogue among contemporary Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities.
Center of Middle Eastern Studies (University of Berkeley)
The CMES is recognized as one of the country's most important sources of information on the Arab states, Iran, Israel, Turkey, and the greater Islamic World.

The CMES promotes the interdisciplinary study of the Middle East on the University of California, Berkeley, campus and beyond, while privileging no single country, topic, or political position. From colloquia and conferences, to grant and research programs, to lecture and film series, we organize a wide variety of academic opportunities and extracurricular activities. Feel free to explore our website and join our mailing list for the latest updates on events and programs.
Chair of Muslim Cultural & Religious History (University of Erfurt)
Within the realm of the humanities, Islamic Studies at the University of Erfurt is an interdisciplinary oriented subject that particularly addresses the social history of Muslim cultures by means of multifaceted research. It thus exceeds the traditionally dominant historical-comparative and philological approaches of related disciplines and institutes in Germany. Our two foci, Muslim cultures in Europe and in South Asia, complete this unique profile. The numerous fascinating research and dissertation projects of our staff members, Ph.D. candidates, and co-operation partners are further evidence of that
Departement of Middle Eastern Studies (The University of Texas au Austin)
While housed in the Department of Middle Eastern Studies, Islamic Studies is envisioned as a multi-disciplinary and multi-regional field of study. Therefore, the program allows students the flexibility to choose from a broad selection of courses related to Islam and Muslim societies offered in a variety of other departments as well, such as African and African-American Studies, Asian Studies, History, Sociology, Anthropology and Art History, taught in rotation by approximately twenty faculty across the University.
Digital Islamic Humanities Project

This site contains a working bibliography, useful resources, a frequently updated blog, and information about our recent conference on the Digital Humanities and Islamic & Middle East Studies.
Institute of Islamic Studies (McGill University)
In its academic programmes, the Institute of Islamic Studies focuses on the religion of Islam, on the history and civilization of the Islamic world, and on the dynamics of contemporary Muslim societies.

Founded in 1952, the Institute has striven to understand the societies and cultures of Islam in an unbiased way, taking into account the scholarship of Muslims (both recent and traditional) and that of non-Muslims. This has been done not only in the abstract but through active engagement, both here in Montreal and in various Islamic countries, and is reflected in our research, our teaching and our outreach efforts, in which our professors and students from many backgrounds have interacted in meaningful ways with Islamic scholars, institutions, and communities throughout the world. This multiculturalism is one of our defining strengths, having made the IIS one of the preeminent institutions of Islamic studies in the world.

In addition to Prof. Gerhard Bowering and Assoc. Prof. Frank Griffel, students also have the benefit of professors in the Near Eastern Studies, History, and Political Science Departments.
Islamic Studies Program (University of Michigan)
The University of Michigan has extraordinary depth in scholarship and instruction dealing with Islam as a world religion and the study of Muslim peoples and societies. Over 50 faculty members from a wide array of departments and professional schools are currently engaged in work related to these topics. The study of Islam and Muslim societies at U-M is not confined to a few highly specialized departments, but is part of the University's mainstream.
Islamic Studies Program at Harvard University
The Alwaleed Islamic Studies Program at Harvard University is dedicated to furthering the scholarly study of Islam and the Muslim world in a broadly interdisciplinary context and offers incomparable resources in its world-class faculty, extensive and multiple libraries, on-line resources, museums, area studies centers and research initiatives.

Through its College, graduate, and professional Schools, Harvard offers undergraduate and graduate coursework in arts and literature, art and architecture, anthropology and sociology, comparative literature, economics, environmental and developmental issues, geography, government and political science, history and the history of science, international relations, law, medieval studies, music, philosophy and the study of religion, and women, gender and sexuality studies.

The Alwaleed Program at Harvard was established with a generous donation from Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, who is known for a wide range of philanthropic activities around the globe.
Islamic Studies at Divinity school (University of Chicago)
The Islamic studies area engages in the study of Islam as a textual tradition inscribed in history and particular cultural contexts. The area seeks to provide an introduction to and a specialization in Islam through a large variety of expressions (literary, poetic, social, and political) and through a variety of methods (literary criticism, hermeneutics, history, sociology, and anthropology). It offers opportunities to specialize in fields that include Qur’anic studies, Sufi literature, Islamic philosophy, and Islamic law and theology. In addition to the courses listed below, students are encouraged to consult related course offerings in other areas of the Divinity School and in other university departments such as History, Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, and South Asian Languages and Civilizations.
Master in Islamic studies (Universiteit Leiden)
The one-year specialisation in Islamic Studies provides you with an introduction to the various theoretical and methodological approaches to historical and current forms of Islam. The focus of this programme is on ‘Islam and Society’, with special emphasis on the comparative study of Muslim society. It aims to respond to the growing demand for internationally oriented programmes that provide thorough training in the methodology of Islamic Studies. The specialisation in Islamic Studies provides you with the skills and insights required to conduct research in your chosen field. Much research on Islamic Studies is based on written sources and archive material from Islamic cultures and societies. This programme particularly focuses on these sources, teaching you to establish their value and importance in a specific context, or as the basis for a hypothesis. Social and historical approaches to the field are given ample attention, too.
Master of Arts in Islamic Studies (Columbian College of Arts & Sciences of Washington)
The Master of Arts in Islam combines the study of classical Islam with the study of the contemporary Islamic world. This approach is premised on the assumption that an understanding of today’s Islamic world cannot be achieved without a thorough grounding in the history of Islamic religion and civilization, an assumption often overlooked by scholars and analysts.

The curriculum is constructed with this dual focus in mind. Students are expected to take a number of core courses in the Religion Department that provide familiarity with Islamic religion throughout the centuries, alongside courses in other departments and schools at GW that provide insight into current politics, society, and culture in the Islamic world. Most prominent among these departments and schools is the Elliot School of International Affairs which offers a wide array of courses on the contemporary Islamic world.
Mohammed Said Farsi Chair of Islamic Peace
The Mohammed Said Farsi Chair of Islamic Peace is the first chair endowed at any university in the United States that is devoted to the study of Islam and peace.
Professor Said approaches this opportunity with the understanding that, "...because Islamic traditions provide a set of powerful political precepts and practices with universal implication, Islam also can make important contributions to a peaceful world order -- one that affirms the unique value of all cultural traditions."
Philosophy in the Islamic World.
