Description

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 in Europe as well as in the Arab world, and Islam is a Western religion as well as an Arab one. The MA in Arab and Islamic Studies at Aarhus University therefore focuses on today’s globalised and transnational realities, on Islam and Muslims in Europe as well as in the Arab world.

Career Opportunities  

All Western organisations working with the Arab world or with Arab or Muslim communities in the West – from travel agencies to security services – need people with expertise in Arab and Islamic studies. Possible employers include both public sector, from local administrations to aid organisations, and private sector, as many Western firms operate in the Arab world. Graduates in Arab and Islamic Studies also choose careers as journalists, scholars, and political experts.
