The Master of Studies in Islamic Studies and History is a one-year degree for students with substantial knowledge of the field and capable, without further language training, to work with pre-modern Arabic, Persian and Turkish primary sources as appropriate to their particular research interests. Students can take specialised classes and undertake independent research under the supervision of a faculty member. The course focuses on the political, social, and intellectual history of the central Islamic lands (Egypt, the Fertile Crescent, the Arabian Peninsula, Iran, Central Asia, and Anatolia) up until c. 1800. The course is characterised by a strong emphasis on research methods and primary sources, thus making it a very good entry gate for subsequent doctoral study. You will already possess substantial general knowledge of Islamic or Middle Eastern studies and history.
