Return to Schools and Departments Return to: Schools and Departments

The minor in Coptic Studies provides students with an introduction to the Coptic period as it follows on from the Pharaonic period and into the Islamic period. This interdisciplinary program, drawing primarily from the Egyptology and Arabic Studies, will cover religion, art, literature, & social and political history from the early days until the present. Influences between different groups, as manifested culturally, will also be studied. Although the main offerings for this minor are currently based in Egyptology and Arabic Studies, other offerings from Political Science, Religion, Art History, History, etc. can also be included, where appropriate.

The minor is supervised by the head of the Egyptology Unit in the SAPE Department.
