MA in Islamic Studies University of California, Los Angeles




Course info


The UCLA Islamic Studies program, founded in the late 1950’s, is among the oldest of such programs in the country. The program is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of Islam and global Muslim communities. Students work with affiliated faculty whose regional specializations include North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, South Asia and whose interests span the rise of Islam up to the modern period. Islamic Studies courses are offered across academic fields and disciplines including history, law, Arabic, comparative literature, anthropology, sociology, study of religion, philosophy, and art and art history.

The MA program serves as a gateway to the PhD track. It is also useful for students seeking careers in teaching, business, journalism, government service, public policy and other areas for which advanced knowledge of Muslim cultures and civilization and Islamic history would be useful.
