The Religion of Islam
This course provides an overview of the Qur'an, life and teachings of Muhammad, and the differences between Sunni and Shi'i Islam. Students also receive an introduction to Islamic intellectual traditions and cultures.
Detailed reading assignments and a finalized syllabus will be available prior to the beginning of the course. Readings can be accessed online in early January.
Community members may choose to attend all sessions in the semester (approximately 15 weeks), except exam days, or attend fewer sessions on a drop-in basis. You are welcome to participate in all class discussions and assignments, but UA students will have priority in accessing office hours and individualized assistance from the professor or teaching assistants. All community members are expected to abide by the same code of conduct that applies to regular UA-enrolled students.
You can register online through the University of Arizona Foundation. You'll need to enter your contact information and credit card details. You'll receive a confirmation email once you complete your registration.
