Student Profile(s)

Taib

In addition to its quality of education and the reputation of its faculty, Al-Maktoum College seemed like an ideal institution, positioned in Europe, where I could engage with the classical and contemporary academic literature on Islamic Studies and recent debates on Islam and Muslims in the West.

I highly value the content and syllabi of the courses that I undertook. The content of the courses was comprehensive and well-researched, and the syllabi consisted of lengthy lists of seminal references for further detailed reading about the major historical and contemporary topics associated with Islamic Studies.

I would certainly recommend Al-Maktoum College to anyone interested either in 1) gaining a foundational and contextual understanding of the religion of Islam that captures the heterogeneous nature of Muslims and Islamic scholarship in a structured and academic manner or 2) specializing in specific aspects of Islamic studies.
