Religious Oratory

The Department offers courses on the process of delivering effective religious messages to one’s audience. It focuses on concepts, definitions, principles, models, techniques, and other theoretical and practical aspects of religious oratory. Especially in the Islamic context, the Department provides students the education necessary to enable them to transmit the basic teachings of Islam to their listeners. Courses are designed to train students not only to inform, but also, through sharing their emotions, to persuade and motivate their audiences to act. Students are taught to analyze the basic elements of oratory: “who is saying what using what medium with what effects?”
