Course content

The central objective of the Islamic Education Pathway within the MA Religions, Society and Education is to enable diverse groups of teachers and Muslim educators to become research-based reflective practitioners whilst facilitating teaching and learning of Muslim faith and its historical and modern expressions within diverse contemporary educational settings. By adopting an interdisciplinary research framework, you will critically examine perceptions of education in Muslim textual sources and intellectual heritage as well as engage with modern educational theory and pedagogic practice.

This course will develop your ability to engage, apply and develop a range of research and methodological approaches to your own professional practice and provide opportunities for your own professional development and reflection. Emphasis is placed on providing you with the opportunity to engage with a range of dynamic and challenging concepts and methods and to apply these to your professional experience and contexts. The first part of the programme has therefore been designed to enable you to explore a range of research methods relevant to your particular area of professional expertise in Religions, Society and Education. As an independent practitioner in Islamic Education, you will apply, develop and then extend your own professional practice and academic skills, culminating in the submission of an extended study in the form of a 20,000-word dissertation.

This programme draws on current staff research and teaching expertise as well as both academic and professional relationships developed by staff in the Warwick Religions and Education Research Unit (WRERU) within CES.
