BA in Islamic Studies

The BA (Hons) Islamic Studies programme provides students with an in-depth and critical understanding of Islam in a contemporary context, based on both historical sources and contemporary theoretical perspectives and discourses of Islam. It also examines the influence of religion on culture, history and tradition enabling exploration of the plurality of beliefs within the UK and Europe. This understanding will enable students to engage with and respond to contemporary issues and challenges facing Muslim communities arising from a multicultural and multi-faith society.
