Description

This undergraduate course teaches major events, fields, and debates that continue to shape American Muslim attitudes, priorities, inequalities, and interactions. It covers a brief history of Muslims in the USA beginning with the European conquest of the Americas through the present time. From media to fashion, sports to politics, medicine to commerce, stigma to discrimination, or race to sect, the course incorporates a variety of voices frequently positioned as representative of “Muslim Americans” along with the critical issues and arguments in the field of Muslim American Studies. Beyond the depth and breadth of topic area knowledge, through this course, students will gain critical research, writing, and presentation skills that will benefit them regardless of their primary concentration.

Course Requirements:

This course requires regular participation, class attendance, timely completion of all written assignments, and providing feedback to peers in the class. Students will offer individual presentations and a final group presentation. They will also be assigned either a midterm paper or an exam.
