Middle East & Islamic Studies Program

Your support is critical to our success. Gifts to the Middle East & Islamic Studies Program help us continue our exceptional research and will support the development of outstanding graduates and professionals.


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


Arabic Program Minor
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.
