MES 320 - Islamic Thought and Practice

Credits: 4
Examines many dimensions of Islamic faith-historical, legal, doctrinal, popular and behavioral-from early times to the present. While emphasis is on the early period and its influence on events and people, the course also attempts to relate these early developments to contemporary issues in the Middle East, such as colonialism, gender equality, modernization, development and democracy. Students are encouraged to begin thinking about relevant similarities and differences between themselves and Muslim peoples around the world.

Corequisite(s): Available only to students participating in the BestSemester Middle East Studies Program.
