Required for students in the Islamic Studies Master of Arts program, this course is also suitable for graduate students in other departments who study the Middle East, South Asia and Africa or are interested in Islam. With weekly guest visits by faculty, Foundation offers students a unique opportunity to learn directly from scholars from across disciplines and schools at Columbia. Qualified undergraduates may register with permission of Kathryn Spellman.
