The Carleton Centre for the Study of Islam aims to support the production and dissemination of world-class scholarship on Islam and Muslims, actively engage with the broader community, and show leadership in innovative approaches to the study of Islam and issues facing Muslims today.
A Vital Resource
The Centre is based in the Religion program in Carleton’s prestigious College of the Humanities, which offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion with minors in Jewish Studies and Muslim Studies, as well as a new Master of Arts degree in Religion in Public Life. The Centre will support teaching and research on topics related to Islam in these programs. Furthermore, the Centre will work to promote a deeper understanding of Islam in the wider community, sponsoring conferences, lectures, seminars, and other special events.
A Unique Opportunity
Carleton is explicitly non-sectarian. This means Carleton welcomes all traditions and embraces a multitude of different scholarly approaches. This provides students and scholars with a unique opportunity to study Islam, produce ground-breaking research, and make meaningful contributions to society.
