Course summary

This programme is designed to help you develop knowledge and understanding of Islam as a religion, as well as the history, thought and culture of Muslims. Opening the door to Islam's rich intellectual heritage, it will give you a thorough grounding in a variety of areas, including Islamic literature and poetry, the Qur'an, Sufism, and Islam in the contemporary world, from Islamic movements to political Islam. You'll learn Arabic in Year 1, with the option to continue language learning if you wish. Edinburgh is recognised in the UK and internationally as a leading institution for the study of Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Islam, and the Middle East. Study with us and you'll be part of a friendly community with great links to the Edinburgh Alwaleed Centre for the Study of Islam in the Contemporary World, a student-led Islamic Society, and a regular programme of workshops and guest seminars.
