SOC 214 - Sociology of Islam 3 s.h.

This course will cover the social life of Islam and how its fundamental beliefs are translated into practices and insti- tutions. There will be a focus on the regional as well as theological variations within the Islamic world. Attention will be paid to the connections between Islamic faith and contemporary socio-political movements. This is not specifically a course about Islamic theology, but will discuss the terminology of Muslim belief systems in order to better understand the experiential aspects of religious and social practices. A-E Only.
