Overview

This Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations programme from The University of Edinburgh  offers a deep and broad study of the rich intellectual traditions of Islamic law, theology and philosophy in conversation with Christian thought, ethics and political theology. The dialogical framework of the course allows you to study multiple disciplines in both Islamic and Christian thought and practice, not as mere historical artefacts, but as resources that transform the academic study of religion and engage public debates on the place of Islam, Christianity, and religion in society.

The programme’s core courses will enable you to receive a strong grounding in the major themes and methodologies in Islam and in the academic study of Christian-Muslim relations. You will gain a deep appreciation of the philosophical, theological and ethical debates between Christians and Muslims in different times and places. Optional courses from which you may choose your other modules, include a variety of courses in both Islam and Christianity: Islamic literature; Islam, Law and Human Rights; Islam, Gender and Ethics; and African Religious Diversity as well as the various options in Christian theology and history. In addition, students can take courses offered by the department of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies (IMES).

The programme offers opportunities for study and collaboration with world renowned academics, with a view to tailoring a personalized path to doctoral study or to other relevant careers.
