Course content

The MA in Middle East and Islamic Studies is highly flexible in that it enables you to select 75 credits of options, followed by a 60 credit dissertation on an approved subject of your choice - thereby creating your own personalised programme. This award is very well suited to students who need to study for the specific requirements of an employer, as well as those who welcome the opportunity to create an individualised study pathway.

On this programme you will study three core modules, which will bring you into contact with other students on Institute masters programmes. In this way you will be welcomed as a part of our student community and will benefit from contact with a wide range of students with similar interests, no matter which options you later choose.
