A strong language base is combined with an emphasis on understanding Islam as a religion, culture, civilisation and way of life. Compulsory language modules are studied over the four years of the degree, including the year abroad. Core modules cover an introduction to Islam, the Islamic humanities, classical Islamic history, anthropological approaches to Islam, Sufism and Islamic devotional life, and Islamic theological traditions. You can expect to achieve a high level of competency in all aspects of the Arabic language, together with a thorough grounding in Islamic studies.
