Academics

The Islamic Studies Program (ISP) collaborates with faculty to develop instruction, research, and public affairs programming at the University of Michigan. ISP is designed to establish U-M as a national leader in the field of Islamic Studies, benefiting undergraduate and graduate students and faculty.

ISP supports projects that enhance research and teaching related to Islam, Islamic societies, and Muslim diasporas in the West. In particular, it encourages collaborative, interdisciplinary work that explores interregional and global contexts in which Islam plays a dynamic role.

Undergraduate students are invited to explore the Islamic Studies minor. Graduate students can participate in the activities of the Interdisciplinary Islamic Studies Seminar (IISS).
