Graduate Studies

Potential graduate students should note that applications to Stanford University for graduate-level study of Islam or aspects of Muslim societies must be directed to a particular academic department (e.g., History, Religious Studies, Political Science, Anthropology, Comparative Literature) and not to the Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies. The Abbasi Program does not grant admission to Stanford, but supports and encourages research and teaching at Stanford on Islam and Muslim societies. For more information about application procedures and requirements, please visit the Stanford Office of Graduate Admission.
