About this course
The Macdonald Center for the Study of Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations, the first of its kind in the nation, embodies Harford Seminary’s commitment to the study of Islam and Christianity and the complex relationship between the two religions throughout history and in the modern world. This Ph.D. program will continue the Seminary’s long legacy of educating and training experts in Christian-Muslim relations.
It will provide advanced study in the knowledge and practical application of Islamic Studies and Christian-Muslim relations and train scholars who will be experts in this area. We envision graduates of this program will further the mission and purpose of Hartford Seminary as professors at institutions of higher education, independent scholars and experts in Christian-Muslim relations, and as leaders or directors of organizations that are involved in interfaith work.
