Islamic Studies

For all students undertaking their Undergraduate Degrees

Islamic Studies electives will provide students with a deeper understanding of areas related to Islam and Muslims in historical and contemporary settings. The areas of interest include foundation of Islam and its teachings and Islamic and Eastern origins of Western civilisation. Students are expected to develop intellectual skills in understanding the nexus between traditional Islam and contemporary realities, modern manifestations and transformations within the body politic of Islam and new themes and trends that are shaping the modern Muslim experience. The study of these courses can enhance career opportunities in media, politics, foreign affairs, and education. The courses are online, and the contents are designed in a welcoming and inclusive environment that makes for easy engagement with course coordinators and to meet your academic expectations. Students can choose to take the courses as  electives.  

"I was able to expand my knowledge on my religion specifically whilst also gaining a broader insight into narratives of history and politics that are often marginalized, rather than just learning about the impact of the West."  Madina Ahmet, Education Student
