Columbia & Aga Khan University launch Dual Masters in Islamic Studies

Teacher Insights

Columbia and Aga Khan University are launching a dual master's degree program that will start this fall. The program will be administered by Columbia’s Middle East Institute (MEI) in New York and the Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilizations (AKU-ISMC) at Aga Khan in London. Students will begin their studies at Columbia, finish them at Aga Khan and receive degrees from both institutions.

The program will provide a unique opportunity for students to learn from world-class scholars and have access to the distinctive academic resources of both universities. The partnership will also foster joint research projects and publications through faculty exchanges.

The innovative curriculum includes intensive foreign language instruction in either Arabic or Farsi. Enrolled students will be trained in thesis research, planning and methodology. They will take core courses that cover foundational concepts, theories and debates in the field of Islamic and Muslim studies.
