The Ph.D. program in Islamic Studies is designed primarily for students preparing for an academic career. Doctoral students are encouraged to construct individualized programs of study that will prepare them to carry out pioneering research leading to the Ph.D. 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.
