Through reviewing religious and philosophical beliefs throughout history, students can gain a better grasp not only on each of the specific traditions but also on people’s beliefs in general.

Islam is Denmark’s – and indeed Western Europe’s – second-largest religion. The days are gone when it made sense to study the Arab and Islamic worlds as a distant ‘other.
Focusing on islam as a transnational reality
Globalised and transnational Islam
Islam is Denmark’s – and indeed Western Europe’s – second-largest religion. The days are gone when it made sense to study the Arab and Islamic worlds as a distant “other”. Arab communities are to be found within Europe as well as in the Arab world, and Islam is now a Western religion as well as an Arab one. The MA in Arab and Islamic Studies therefore focuses on today’s globalised and transnational realities and on Islam and Muslims in Europe as well as in the Arab world.
A transdisciplinary, research-based teaching environment
The MA in Arab and Islamic Studies is taught by faculty members from the Arab and Islamic Studies Research Network, a transdisciplinary research unit for all Aarhus University scholars interested in Islamic cultures and societies both within the Islamic world and transregionally. The research unit aims to provide a stimulating research milieu for both senior and junior researchers by promoting discussion and exchange as well as arranging events....
