Middle East and Islamic Studies at University of Louisville

The Middle East and Islamic Studies (MEIS) program strives to promote research and education about Islam and the Middle East to the University community.

About the Center

The Middle East and Islamic Studies (MEIS) program strives to promote research and education about Islam and the Middle East to the University community. Their philosophy is that one must acquire competency in language, social sciences and the humanities to fully understand and appreciate this region. Therefore, the program employs an interdisciplinary approach by offering courses in Arabic language, anthropology, art history, humanities, history, and political science.

This program offers an interdisciplinary study of Islam and the Middle East through coursework in anthropology, art history, history, humanities, pan-African studies, political science, sociology, and Arabic language.

Arabic Program
The emergence of the Arabic language on a global scale has inspired the University of Louisville to offer a newly expanded Arabic Program that offers basic, intermediate and advanced courses.
