Studying within the SI program

  • Our students gain a deep understanding of the Arabic language, as well as Islamic history and culture, and contemporary issues facing Muslim peoples.
  • We offer courses in art and visual culture, history, daily life and contemporary issues, theatre, and literature.  We also offer Arabic language courses at the introductory, intermediate, or advanced level.
  • Arabic language Conversation Circles are held throughout the term allowing students to converse with native Arabic language speakers from Renison's English Language Institute.
  • Our classes are kept small so there are many opportunities to interact on a one-on-one basis with faculty members and other students.  
  • Students can earn a Minor or Diploma in Studies in Islam.  Also, we offer a number of interdisciplinary opportunities.  We encourage our students to select electives from a variety of fields including Fine Arts, History, Music, Political Science, Religious Studies, Geography, International Development, Mathematics, and Psychology.  Students can also earn a Certificate or Diploma in Arabic Language if they successfully complete the required number of courses and meet the minimum cumulative average.
