The MPhil in Islamic Art and Archaeology is a two-year course combining comprehensive training in the history of Islamic art, architecture and archaeology, research, and language instruction. The course is designed for students with little or no background in Islamic art and archaeology who wish also to learn Arabic or Persian or Ottoman Turkish. This MPhil can be taken either as a stand-alone course or as the first two years of doctoral research. Students will have a supervisor at the Khalili Research Centre. Students are expected to attend tutorials, classes, lectures and seminars regularly. During the first year, students will attend eight practical classes which introduce techniques to describe and analyse buildings and objects in a range of media (such as ceramics, epigraphy, manuscripts, metalwork, numismatics, and textiles) and which provide training with basic academic skills (such as presentation of work in a lecture or seminar, and writing museum display and book reviews).
