Course summary

Why choose this course?

The course is a unique opportunity for you to explore the Sikh community and the Sikh faith both in India and the diaspora, with a particular emphasis on the British Sikh perspective. The MA Sikh Studies will serve as an international model of good practice in community-based research relating to contemporary issues. You will be encouraged to foster links with the British Library which holds a wealth of Sikh manuscripts. You will also be given the opportunity to carry out in-depth research on any aspect of Sikh Studies. The University of Wolverhampton is an ideal location in which to undertake the MA Sikh Studies due to the population of Sikhs in the City. The University has very strong links with the local and national community and has also become the home to the UK’s very first Centre for Sikh and Panjabi Studies. The University of Wolverhampton is committed to working with local communities and has extensive experience and links with the Sikh communities in Wolverhampton and nationally, along with increasing expertise in Sikh studies and research.

Career Paths

This course will give you the skills to work in political organisations across the world as well as faith based institutions and the teaching profession. The course is ideal for roles around religious literacy relating to Sikhs and working with agencies to tackle hate crime against Sikhs because of a lack of awareness of the Sikhs and their faith. Therefore career paths could include Journalism, social work and other community facing roles. The course is also an ideal preparation for further research on a PhD programme.
