Introduction

Mode of Attendance: Online learning

What are the challenges faced by Muslim minority communities and their host societies? What are the debates surrounding the place of religious minorities in secular societies?

Recent political shifts in Muslim majority countries have put Muslim minorities in the spotlight and impacted upon their relationship with their host societies. This programme gives you an opportunity to consider Muslim minority communities comparatively, within both western and non-western contexts.

You will explore the varieties of religious interpretations and practices that have resulted in issues and challenges arising uniquely within different Muslim minority communities and the key themes of:

  • Ethnicity
  • Gender
  • Islamaphobia
  • Law
  • History
  • Civil society

The programme is highly interdisciplinary and offers a flexible combination of module choices including law, history, international relations, and diplomacy. You will gain the expertise to evaluate materials from different sources such as the media, government reports and legal documents as well as academic research.

You will acquire the skills necessary to work in a wide range of professions that require an understanding of inter-cultural relations and policy-making at both local and national levels.

The programme is offered by the Department of Religions and Philosophies and delivered by the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (CISD).

MA Muslim Minority students are eligible to join the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy Study tour.
