Duke Islamic Studies Center
The Duke Islamic Studies Center (DISC) is a vibrant, diverse community of scholars and students engaged in interdisciplinary teaching, interactive learning, and cutting-edge research about Islam and Muslims.
One of the leading institutions in North America for the study of Islam and Muslims, DISC educates today's students to become tomorrow's leaders by equipping them with knowledge about the breadth and diversity of Islamic cultures, cross-cultural experiences, and language skills. The center takes a comparative, cross cultural approach to Islamic studies to encourage creative solutions to the economic, political and social challenges involving Muslims.
We are committed to working with partners at home and abroad to provide undergraduate and graduate students, professionals and policy makers with the knowledge about Muslims and Islamic cultures, beliefs and practices that will enable them to operate effectively in a multicultural world.
