The Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies provides Stanford students with an interdisciplinary view of modern Iran's rich and complex history, language, culture, and diaspora. Students may undertake a minor (part of Stanford Global Studies), enroll in an array of courses, complete a certificate program, apply for research funding, and engage in other opportunities for collaboration and learning.  The program prepares students for careers in academia, policy, government, business, research, and more.
