University of Aberdeen
Candidates must normally have an Honours degree to at least 2.1 standard in an appropriate discipline or equivalent qualifications and experience. Applicants who have been educated in the medium of English are still required to meet the English language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that applicants meet the 'postgraduate standard' level of English proficiency. Applicants who are in doubt about their proficiency in English should contact the British Council office or its equivalent in their country. For applicants whose 1st language is not English, it is important that their proficiency in English is good in order for them to study successfully at the University.
Core modules: research skills preparation (30 credit points); dissertation (20,000 words, 60 credits). Elective courses: (90 credit points): 3 chosen from Level 5 courses such as: depictions of demons and demonology in Islam: religion, literature and culture; 'Isa: the Islamic image of Jesus (origins and development) (30 credits); Qur'an and commentary (30 credits); stories of the prophets in Islam: a comparative perspective (30 credits); the life of Muhammad: religion, history, literature (30 credits); Islamic ethics (15 credits); morality and belief in Islam (30 credits); independent reading in historical studies (15 credits); approaching archives (15 credits); interpreting myth (30 credits).
Assessment will be mixed (course work and/or examination) but mainly consist of essays on advanced topics.

An oral examination may be held at the discretion of the examiners.
