  • Students benefit from the burgeoning resources of the University Library which has some 6,000 Persian books and 800 films.
  • Ideal for those who do not wish to pursue an academic path but do require expertise and knowledge to better pursue their chosen career, be it in journalism, government or the corporate sector.
  • Introduction to major themes, concepts and approaches including aspects of methodology and historiography, and questions of nationalism, religion and society, as well as an outline of Iran’s place in the region and the broader international community.
  • Access to a unique range of expertise on Iran from Late Antiquity to the modern era, along with a rich research environment provided by the Institute for Iranian Studies and staff located in other Schools including Art History, Classics and Modern Languages.

Teaching format

The taught programme includes a compulsory module introducing students to the study of Iran, with further module options in Iranian history, politics and language. 

The modules are taught through seminars, lectures and fortnightly tutorials, with class sizes ranging from individual supervision up to 12 students. The modules are assessed through coursework or a combination of coursework and examination.
