The critical role of Islam in global affairs makes it an increasingly valuable part of the undergraduate curriculum. Despite this, very little consideration has been given to methods of teaching Islam. This book brings together leading scholars to offer perspectives on teaching Islam to undergraduates. The contributors draw on a wealth of experience in diverse classroom settings, from large universities to private colleges. They address topics such as Islamic law, the Quran, Sufism, women in Islam and Islam in America, and explore ways of teaching Islam through literature and information technology. While examining the place of Islamic studies within the larger frameworks of religious studies and the liberal arts curriculum, they provide practical guidelines for structuring courses and assignments. Throughout, they aim to combine practical pedagogical concerns with the most up-to-date scholarship.
