Overview

You can pursue a minor in Arabic, Persian, Turkish or Urdu through the Islamic Studies Institute. Whichever language you choose, you’ll receive comprehensive training in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. 

You can enter the minor in Turkish no matter what your level of experience is with the language. If you have no prior knowledge of Turkish, you’ll start with introductory courses that teach you how to understand and communicate at a basic level. 

As your skills develop, you’ll be introduced to increasingly complex texts, and can start exploring culturally significant Turkish media.


Careers

If you’re looking to major in Islamic Studies, this minor can round out your degree and help you when it comes time to enter the workforce. No matter what your aspirations are, knowing how to speak multiple languages is a great asset for your career or future study. 

You could become a:

  • Professor 
  • Policy Analyst  
  • International Relations 
  • Political Aide 
  • Lawyer 

Student Experience

You’ll have access to a library equipped with some of the most important manuscripts and reference materials of Islamic Studies, offered through McGill University and the University of Tehran. The Tehran Branch has produced over 100 volumes of major works by Islamic-Iranian scholars, many of which are accompanied by introductions and translations into foreign languages.  

Though the library itself is in the University of Tehran, many publications put out by the branch have been digitalized and can be accessed through the Tehran Branch Publications page.
