Islam is the faith of over a billion followers. Most Muslims live in Indonesia, India, and Pakistan; the majority of Middle Easterners and many Africans are Muslims. The strong political engagement of the United States in the contemporary Middle East has made familiarity with Islam an urgent contemporary issue. This course will introduce students to Islam in its many forms, and help them to gain a better understanding of this world religion in its contemporary transnational and international dimensions.
