Every year the Zwemer Center for Muslim Studies offers graduate-level courses and seminars on Islam through Columbia International University in Columbia, SC. Most classes are one-week intensives offered on campus in January and throughout the summer, some are available online year-round, and a few are offered on-campus during the regular semester. All intensive courses may also be taken as a seminar for $250 (non-credit). We do offer a masters degree in Muslim Studies. View degree requirements.
