Course summary

Programme description

With the majority of the world’s Muslims living beyond the Middle East, this bold new Masters programme will encourage you to engage with the contemporary Muslim world in all its global and regional diversity.

The programme is truly interdisciplinary in bringing together Area Studies, Social and Political Science, Religious Studies and History to explore the unique characteristics of contemporary Muslim societies in our increasingly globalised world.

Muslim societies across the globe

Unlike the majority of masters programmes currently available to students with interests in contemporary Muslim societies, the MSc The Globalised Muslim World will offer a genuinely global perspective, pushing the boundaries of enquiry beyond the Middle East to South Asia, Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa as well as a number of key Muslim-minority contexts.

Beyond considering this wider geographical scope, you will be taught to critically analyse and interrogate major global, international and transnational interactions and movements which can cut across borders and shape Muslim imaginaries and their representations.

Career opportunities

This programme aims to equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to pursue PhD research on a wide variety of Muslim-majority and Muslim-minorities states and societies.

It will also provide you with crucial insights into the interactions producing a globalised Muslim world which would be extremely useful in many professional roles, including: global/international/national NGOs; private sector organisations; international business; foreign policy and diplomacy roles.
