Program Description:

Arabic has been taught at the University of Edinburgh for over 260 years, and today our Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies department is globally recognised as a leading centre in the field, with strong links to the Alwaleed Centre.

Our five taught Masters programmes offer either focused area studies training, or a combination of intensive language study with the interdisciplinary exploration of societies and cultures.

You can choose from:
• MSc in Advanced Arabic
• MSc in Middle Eastern Studies with Arabic
• MSc in Middle Eastern Studies with Advanced Arabic
• MSc in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies
• MSc in Persian Civilisation

Regardless of your existing level of expertise, we will strengthen your language and research skills to better analyse and understand the politics, religion and culture of the region from historical and contemporary perspectives.

You’ll be part of an international group of learners involved in seminars, talks, conferences and collaborations, developing the fluency and confidence to operate at the highest professional and academic levels.

In collaboration with the School of Social and Political Science, we also offer the following two programmes (please note that these are both taught over two years and have slightly different selection processes and requirements; see website for details):
• MSc in International Relations of the Middle East with Arabic
• MSc in International Relations of the Middle East with Advanced Arabic
