Studies in Islam - Overview
Printable Version Printable Version

Studies in Islam are multi-disciplinary academic plans administered through Renison University College and open to all University of Waterloo students.

Fundamental to this program is the belief that Islam and its many facets are to be seen as an important part of the history and legacy of the West. Its historical contributions to the world as well as its contemporary manifestations are explored. Islam, its peoples, and its insights are studied in the context of other religious, cultural, and social traditions or issues. Courses in cross-cultural dynamics, technologies, and environments are an important part of this program.

Within courses, students focus on projects through aspects of Islam and/or Muslim peoples. The final capstone course, SI 390R, draws together the questions, learning, and understandings experienced across disciplines.
