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.
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
The Digital Islamic Humanities Project is a research initiative of the Middle East Studies program at Brown University (Rhode Island-USA). 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 for Policy Studies (IPS)
IPS is a community of public scholars and organizers linking peace, justice, and the environment in the U.S. and globally. We work with social movements to promote true democracy and challenge concentrated wealth, corporate influence, and military power.

As Washington’s first progressive multi-issue think tank, the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) has served as a policy and research resource for visionary social justice movements for over four decades — from the anti-war and civil rights movements in the 1960s to the peace and global justice movements of the last decade. Some of the greatest progressive minds of the 20th and 21st centuries have found a home at IPS, starting with the organization’s founders, Richard Barnet and Marcus Raskin.
Islamic Studies (Yale university)
The Yale University Ph. D. Program in Islamic Studies is devoted to comprehensive research on the religion of Islam and to training superior students for academic careers in that field. Students accepted into the program are offered full scholarships along with a multi-year stipend. Islamic Studies is one of ten fields in the Department of Religious Studies, where students and professors researching different religious traditions interact. 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 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 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."
Société Internationale d'Histoire des Sciences et de la Philosophie Arabes et Islamiques (SIHSPAI)
La Société Internationale d'Histoire des Sciences et de la Philosophie Arabes et Islamiques (SIHSPAI) a été fondée en 1989 lors du Colloque international d'Histoire des sciences et de la philosophie arabes tenu à Paris du 22 au 25 novembre de la même année. Les fondateurs de la SISHPAI, en créant cette Société, faisaient un double pari : en regroupant histoire des sciences et histoire de la philosophie arabes, ils espéraient désenclaver ces deux disciplines et les ouvrir aux courants de l'histoire universelle ; en même temps, ils comptaient œuvrer pour le succès d'une histoire des sciences qui ne soit pas étroitement technicienne, et d’une histoire de la philosophie conçue comme une discipline rigoureuse.
The Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies (Stanford University)
The Sohaib and Sara Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies is the central forum for interdisciplinary research and teaching in Islamic Studies at Stanford University.
