Sikh Studies

The course is a unique opportunity for you to explore the Sikh community and the Sikh faith both in India and the diaspora, with a particular emphasis on the British Sikh perspective. The MA Sikh Studies will serve as an international model of good practice in community-based research relating to contemporary issues. You will be encouraged to foster links with the British Library which holds a wealth of Sikh manuscripts. You will also be given the opportunity to carry out in-depth research on any aspect of Sikh Studies. The University of Wolverhampton is an ideal location in which to undertake the MA Sikh Studies due to the population of Sikhs in the City. The University has very strong links with the local and national community and has also become the home to the UK's very first Centre for Sikh and Panjabi Studies. The University of Wolverhampton is committed to working with local communities and has extensive experience and links with the Sikh communities in Wolverhampton and nationally, along with increasing expertise in Sikh studies and research.

Entry requirements

MA: The entry requirement would normally be a 2:1 undergraduate degree in a relevant area. Exceptionally, a 2:2 would be considered upon a successful interview. Students with a linguistics or language-related discipline but without a background in computer science would be appropriately advised by the course team and additional specialist technical support provided where necessary. We also require IELTS 6.5 or above.

Assessment methods

The MA Sikh Studies provides a range of modules relating to both the Sikh faith as well as the Sikh community (the Panth) and will provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate a systematic understanding of both traditional as well as current insights in Sikh Studies. The curriculum will encourage you to explore the many viewpoints towards particular topics such as gender equality, the philosophical teachings of Sikhi, as well as into current debates affecting the global Sikh community. Through the course you will acquire the skills to apply originality in the application of knowledge gained from research, field visits and guest lectures from leading researchers in Sikh Studies. A unique feature of this course is the fieldwork you will carry out within the Sikh community itself, this can be with organisations or regional communities. This will enable you to demonstrate self-direction and originality whilst carrying out professional research within the Sikh community.
