Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana will offer a course which gives actual academic credit to students for meeting Muslims, hanging out at a Muncie mosque, and making a documentary film about Muslims who reside in the local area.
The taxpayer-funded course at Ball State is a seminar titled "Muslims In Muncie," according to an informational email obtained by The Daily Caller.
The course is scheduled for the spring semester.
A flyer promoting the "Muslims In Muncie" course explains that enrolled students will "learn about the history and diversity of Muslims in America" by participating "in the social and ritual life of the Muncie Islamic Center." Students will also meet Muslim leaders and collect oral histories from Muslims for a documentary film.
