What we offer:
The curriculum serves to deepen specialised knowledge and experience in a scientific manner through research-oriented courses and methods of study. For this purpose a scientifically structured curriculum imparts knowledge about the intellectual history of the Islamic world in its respective socio-historical and multi-religious contexts. The primary focus lies on subsidiary disciplines such as the History of Ideas, Law and Legal Methodology, as well as Material Culture/Social History. In the modules taught on History of Ideas students work on reading and interpretation of sources in the original language regarding various approaches to problems in Rational Theology, Exegesis, Philosophy, Logic, and/or Islamic, Jewish and Christian Mysticism in the Arabic-speaking world. The module Law and Legal Methodology deals with the foundations, structure, methodology, and functional form of Islamic Law.
