Islamic Studies

Islam is one of the most influential and widely practised religions in the world. This degree will give you the opportunity to understand and appreciate the way it has developed over time and how it continues to play a crucial role in the modern world. Whether you’re a native Arabic speaker or have never studied the language before, this course offers the chance to learn or improve your language skills. However, it puts this study in the context of the wider cultural, intellectual, political and social history of communities across the Islamic world. You’ll gain a good grounding in Islamic history, theology and law through core modules. A wide variety of optional modules mean you will also be able to focus on the areas that interest you, from the Qur’an and Hadith to Arab cinema and the complexities of Middle Eastern politics. This course will equip you with a genuine insight into Islam’s evolution throughout history and into the future.
