BA (Hons) Islamic Studies and Muslim Societies
The programme is an interdisciplinary degree designed to study Islam and Muslim societies in their cultural, social, economic, political and religious dimensions. It is intended to offer new perspectives on Muslim societies in all their complex structures and institutions. It will be the aim to see these societies as evolving entities endowed with their own internal mode of evolution and response to external challenges. Being interdisciplinary and internationally focused, the programme seeks to explore and express a variety of approaches and methodologies, encouraging thereby students to develop and articulate their own theoretical and practical skills.
The study of Muslim societies will be complemented by a thorough study of Islamic texts and the scholarly/intellectual tradition of Islam. This is a shared programme by Middle Eastern Studies (MES) and Religions & Theology (R&T).
