The Center for the Study of Science in Muslim Societies (SSiMS) focuses on investigating the roles and reception of science in Muslim societies, with the goal of understanding how social, political, historical, and religious factors influence--and are influenced by--the methodologies and findings of science.

Our Focus and Approach

Our focus is on Muslim societies across the world, including diaspora or immigrant communities in the West. The center takes an interdisciplinary approach that includes the perspectives of history, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, and science education.

Activities

SSiMS and its faculty have developed grants that have resulted in conferences and lectures. Read news updates for more about what's going on in the Center.

Students engage through coursework and collaborative research, sometimes culminating in DIV III projects. Learn more »
