You will explore language, literature, politics and religion in an interdisciplinary course of study, choosing from courses as diverse as Islam and Modernity in South Asia and Principles of Geoscience: Geology of Human Events in North Africa and the Middle East.

About the Minor

By the end of your studies you will be familiar with the languages, history and worldview of Islamic cultures.

I was extremely fortunate mainly because of Hamilton's open curriculum, which is what I always try to sell to prospective students. It allowed me to major in political science generally, take history courses (which to me are just politics of the past), all while learning a new language and taking meaningful courses on Islam and Islamic philosophy.

Redwan Saleh ’13 — Middle East and Islamic world studies minor

As a minor, the program requires that students complete five courses in the areas of Arabic and Hebrew language and literature, religion, political science and history.
