Program Description:

This taught MSc in Persian Civilisation is distinctive in its breadth and diversity, drawing on the extensive expertise across two Schools of the University in Iranian historical and cultural studies from the period c.800 BCE to the present day. The programme involves scholars with complementary interests in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean civilisation within the School of History, Classics and Archaeology (SHCA) and the School of Literatures, Languages and Culture (LLC).  The programme provides a wide-ranging academic teaching and learning experience, one unique in the field of Persian studies, particularly for those who wish to engage with both the pre-Islamic and Islamic cultures of Iran, and for those wishing to combine research projects at postgraduate level with specialist methodological, theoretical, literary, and historiographical training.
