MA Intellectual Encounters of the Islamicate World
Feb 22, 2017
A blended-learning, one-year, English spoken MA program that crosses disciplinary, religious, cultural and philological boundaries in order to gain new and innovative insights.
The overall goal of the one-year, English spoken MA program Intellectual Encounters of the Islamicate World is to provide its international graduate students with a thorough understanding of the deep and manifold interconnections between the Muslim, Jewish and Christian intellectual output during Medieval times. The program is therefore characterized by a strongly research-driven and interdisciplinary approach. Students will become acquainted with a broad spectrum of aspects of the Islamicate world, such as rational theology and philosophy, law and legal methodology as well as material culture and social history with an emphasis on primary texts in the original language (Arabic). They will be trained and mentored by internationally renowned guest lecturers who are counted among the leading experts in their respective fields of research.
The primarily web-based MA program also includes three face-to-face sessions per academic year during which the students and teachers will come together for several days/a couple of weeks for discussion, teaching and examination.
