Islamic History - Minor

Program Overview

AUC’s broad-based liberal arts education allows you to diversify your learning with a minor or two — helping you develop skills complementary to your primary area of study and demonstrating to potential employers that you have range. 

The Islamic history minor offers a comprehensive study of both pre-modern and modern history, including political and social aspects. With courses covering particular time periods and regimes, as well as thematic analysis of relevant issues such as marriage and family, religious diversity, spirituality, popular culture, gender and class issues, you'll gain a well-rounded understanding of the region's rich history. Perfect for students in history, political science, public policy, Middle East studies, anthropology and sociology, this minor can lead to successful careers in research, education, diplomacy, law, journalism, teaching and public service. It's also a great stepping stone for further graduate studies.
