The Arab and Islamic Studies program offers a major and minor within the Department of Global Interdisciplinary Studies (GIS). The major and minor provide an interdisciplinary and comparative approach to deepen students' understandings of the history, politics, culture, religion, and literature of Arab and Islamic societies. The Arab and Islamic Studies major provides outstanding preparation for careers in government, the military, business, and nonprofits, as well as essential training for graduate education. Villanova’s Center for Arab and Islamic Studies, created in 1983, offers not only the AIS major and minor, but a range of programs and events on campus every semester.
