Analytical context within your Masters

Despite its theological focus, the Master of Islamic Studies deals with social and cultural aspects behind the Muslim belief. Within your study, you learn to comprehend and analyse the Islamic religion, while shedding light upon the religious practice and culture immediately connected with it. You develop a feeling for why Islamic societies have developed the way they did, as their Muslim community feeling can play a role in community- or nation-building processes – and this religious role is not to be underestimated in the greater analysis of a society’s development. Gender roles, for instance, represent a vivid example of a religiously-founded cultural aspect that constitutes a significant structure in certain Muslim societies.

As many of the social science courses, the Master of Islamic Relief is an interdisciplinary one. Discussing history, politics, law, and sociology, you use knowledge from different academic study fields. The overall goal of a Master of Islamic Studies is to comprehend the religious influence on social contexts throughout the world. The migration of Muslim peoples to Western Europe composes one exemplary study focus, the consequences and effects of the Arab Spring - another. Muslim minorities in non-Muslim societies is another individual study aspect you can concentrate on. The Master of Islamic Studies allows for a relatively free choice of topics within the study.

Admission criteria and career prospects 

In order to apply for a Master of Islamic Studies, the accomplishment of an undergraduate degree is mandatory. Most universities demand a Bachelor (or equivalent) degree in cultural studies, history or religious studies. Moreover, proficiency in English and Arabic is usually required. However, some universities allow to deepen your Arabic skills within the first semester.

Following successful completion and an average two years of study, you are entitled the academic title Master of Arts (M. A.) in Islamic Studies. As a newly qualified cultural expert, your career prospects lie in cultural or religious institutes, political departments for migration, or public or private organisations teaching about Islam, Muslim migration and/or integration. Naturally, you can opt for a career in education, research and development.
