Want to study Islam? Try the Zwemer Center

Here is a great program for Islamics at a Christian university:

The Zwemer Center for Muslim Studies at Columbia International University

Named after Samuel Zwemer, the greatest American missionary to work in the Muslim World, the Zwemer ministry is a program established in 1979 as the Zwemer Institute at the U.S. Center for World Missions in Pasadena, California. Over the years Zwemer has offered in-depth courses in Islam, produced papers, fostered dialogue, and facilitated research on pertinent topics, earning an esteemed position in Christian mission circles. In 2003, the Zwemer Institute merged with the Muslim Studies program at Columbia International University in Columbia, SC to become "The Zwemer Center for Muslim Studies" and is directed by Dr. Warren Larson. (From their website.)

Most of the classes are intensive one or two week courses, so attending does not mean you need to drop everything and move permanently. There are also distance education courses.
