Develop a broad understanding of Islamic culture in this wide-ranging degree, which mixes language study with the religious and theological aspects of Islamic practice to give you a balanced sense of language, religion and civilisation. Core modules will introduce you to key issues in Arab and Islamic history and theology, while optional modules will allow you to explore the areas that interest you, from literature and the Qur’an to the media and the complex arena of politics in the Islamic world. You could even learn Turkish or Persian. At the same time, you’ll develop advanced Arabic language skills and cultural awareness – which you will sharpen during a year abroad in either Morocco or Egypt. You’ll also gain valuable transferable skills that will really appeal to employers. With an active student community, excellent resources and tutors who are experts in their fields, Leeds is a great place to study Arabic and Islamic Studies.
