Political shifts in Muslim majority countries have put Muslim minorities in the spotlight and impacted upon their relationship with their host societies. This new highly interdisciplinary Muslim Minorities in a Global Context programme from University of London gives you an opportunity to consider Muslim minority communities comparatively, within both western and non-western contexts.


This programme explores key themes such as ethnicity, gender, Islamophobia, and the religious interpretations and practices that have raised unique challenges within Muslim minority communities.

It has been designed to draw upon your relevant working experience.

Career opportunities

This Muslim Minorities in a Global Context programme from University of London will help you develop the necessary skills to work in professions that require an understanding of inter-cultural relations and policy-making at both local and national levels.

You’ll emerge with key transferable skills, including time-management and analytical skills, as well as experience of evaluating materials from different sources.

'I am impressed by the dynamism of our students, not to mention their eagerness to use learnt ideas to challenge orthodoxies and bring about real change.'

Simon Perfect (Associate Tutor)
