Creating a New Minor in Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies at CSUN

A two-year project to establish a minor in Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies.

The College of Humanities at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) is seeking funding to establish a minor in Middle East and Islamic Studies. As an interdisciplinary program, the minor will offer the study of Islamic and Middle East cultures, politics and societies. An important component of the minor will be training in languages widely spoken in the Middle East and other Muslim majority countries. In Year One (2010/2011 academic year), CSUN will establish three new courses: an Arabic language class, Women in Islamic Literature, and Gender Issues among the Muslim Community of North America. The addition of these three courses to the existing course offerings in the area of Muslim and Middle Eastern studies will allow for the establishment of a new minor in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies. In Year Two (2011/2012 academic year), the following courses will be added: Sufism, Turkish language, intermediate Farsi and advanced Farsi.
