The Center for Global Islamic Studies offers a graduate-level (Master’s and Ph.D.) Certificate in Global Islamic Studies. The goal of this certificate is to train students to pursue careers in teaching and research related to Islam and will broaden students’ understanding of the diversity of Islam in the global context.

The certificate requires the completion of 15 credits for all students. All students must choose two of the three core courses, and three additional elective courses related to particular contexts and topics.

The certificate is interdisciplinary with  courses offerings taught in the departments of Religion, Anthropology, History, LLC, Political Science, and the Center for African Studies. Students will be exposed to and familiarized with a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches from disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities.

Please Note: Currently enrolled UF graduate students will be permitted to count previously taken coursework towards a Graduate Certificate to which they have been admitted if approved by the academic unit offering the Graduate Certificate and by the academic unit offering their primary graduate degree program.
