The Institute for Study of Muslim Civilisations at Aga Khan University enables students to examine the cultural and intellectual history of Muslim societies.
We seek to not only examine the doctrine, law and religious practices present in Muslim cultures, but also their art, poetry, language, architecture and other integral aspects of daily life.
Through insight into Muslim heritages and cultures, students undertake a Masters Programme that helps them develop broad analytical and comparative perspectives.
Key aspects of our Master of Arts in Muslim Cultures include:
- A Humanities and Social Sciences approach;
- Classroom and field-based learning;
- Language and cultural immersion programmes;
- Cultural events, academic workshops and seminars;
- An international setting and diverse student body.
We seek to raise awareness and provide alternative perspectives on the issues relevant to Muslim societies.
We invite you to learn more about the Institute's activities, including our Academic Programmes, Research and Publications or review our Admissions process to apply for our MA Programme or short courses.
