Mulla Sadra’s Philosophy: Continuity and Novelt
Prof. Mohammad Fanaei
Prof. David B. Burrell

This course offers an excellent opportunity to master a very important language which provides an entry into a rich and diverse culture. Since Persian has not changed significantly in over a millennium, the basic grammar for the classical and modern forms of the language is virtually the same and is relatively easy to learn. One of the benefits of learning Farsi is the ability to access a huge body of literature and sources of Islamic knowledge.

The course has three semesters which are designed to prepare students with no previous knowledge of Arabic to read and understand Quranic and classical Islamic texts.

At the end of the course, students would have developed the skills of listening, speaking, reading, and grammar. Students who successfully complete the course will be awarded an Islamic College Certificate of attendance.
