The MA Islamic Intellectual History is a program on historical Islamic studies, offering in-depth study of the intellectual, religious and cultural history of the Islamic world, past and present, and of wider socio-political contexts.
It has broad thematic coverage, including philosophy, theology, political thought, law, historiography and palaeography, as well as a regional coverage that includes the Middle East, South Asia and Central Asia.
This program suits students from different academic backgrounds and prospective personal objectives, from those interested in broadening their knowledge of Islam and the Muslim world and developing intellectual and transferable skills, to those planning to pursue further research in the field.
Students need not know a language other than English to apply for this program. However, they will have the opportunity to take modules involving the study of primary texts in Arabic, Persian, Ottoman Turkish or Syriac should they have the required language proficiency. The program may also be taken in combination with the Intensive Language pathway.
We offer access to unparalleled scholarly and cultural resources and activities relevant to the study of Islam and the Islamic world, both at the School and elsewhere in London. The SOAS Library and British Library have some of the best specialist collections in the world. Activities include conferences, lectures and seminars, exhibitions and reading groups.
