Studying the Persian Language  

Persian is a truly beautiful language, the saying goes “Persian is sweet” (Farsi shekar ast). Whether you study something completely different, have no previous knowledge of Persian or know a little bit of Persian already, everybody is welcome to attend the Persian language courses.   

Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Studies

Students have the opportunity to integrate Iranian studies courses into the B.A. Islamic Studies degree program. Persian, along with Arabic and Turkish, are the three languages offered to study in depth for 4 semesters. The program requires students to pick two out of the three languages.

The history of the Persian-speaking region is a subject of discussion during the introductory courses in the first two semesters (i.e. The Islamic World in the Past and Present). As the students reach their 3rd or 4th semesters, they will be able to take courses from the Iranian studies department. The courses range from the middle ages to the present and discuss historical, literary and cultural topics of the Persian-speaking region. 

Please visit this website for more information about the B.A. Islamic studies degree program.
