Course content

The programme encourages students to explore in-depth a range of topics relating to Islam and Muslims from contemporary and historical perspectives. Islamic Studies is a long-standing discipline at the university, and our academic team have contributed to the field through publications, specialist research, and participation in international conferences.

The MA provides a high-quality student experience suitable for those working within – or associated with - Muslim communities, in minority and majority contexts, especially those wishing to develop a greater understanding of the people, cultures and religious perspectives within which they are engaged.

Islamic Studies (MA) explores significant themes relating to Islam and Muslims in diverse contexts, with detailed lectures and tutorial discussions. This is accomplished through a blend of teaching assessments, including a final dissertation focused on a subject reflecting your Islamic Studies’ interests.
