This is achieved through a detailed exploration of contemporary challenges and the Islamic world's responses. The subject is focused purely on the modern era, and offers students the opportunity to gain a detailed understanding of how contemporary scholars engage, analyse and interact with challenges from the theological, philosophical, political and ethical spheres. This subject has been designed to offer students a dynamic and thought-provoking conclusion to their Islamic Studies program.
Students will devise their own research topic and present the results in writing.
