Given the importance of Islam in world politics and the global economy, many students would like to be able to identify themselves as having some level of expertise in Islam and the Muslim world over and above what might be expected of the ordinary student. A minor in Islamic Studies gives them an opportunity to demonstrate that increased level of expertise. Such expertise will be beneficial to students who plan to pursue a career in business, education, history, anthropology, international studies, religious studies, communication, political science, social work, public administration, art and art history, medicine, criminal justice, sociology and other fields.
