The Master of Islam in the Modern World (MIMW) is a unique program in its interdisciplinary approach, global focus and flexibility and draws on the strength of the Centre in its integration of the study of Middle Eastern and Central Asian contemporary politics, history, culture, political economy, economics, and the religion of Islam within the broader framework of the changing global order. The importance of the Islamic world, and the need for dispassionate study of it, are central to this program. Radical movements have captured world attention, but Muslims face a variety of concerns and challenges that have a formative influence on their individual and collective identities and the stability and future direction of their societies. Indeed, issues of globalisation, development, democratisation, educational reform, and women’s and minority rights are all topical and important and will be highlighted in this program. The degree focuses on modern Muslim societies and Muslims in minority situations. It is trans-regional in its coverage. The study of modern Muslim societies is interdisciplinary. The Master’s draws on approaches from the human sciences but seeks to integrate them with historical and Islamic studies perspectives. Although the focus is primarily on the Middle East and Central Asia it deals with all the main areas of the modern Muslim world. It also provides coverage of Islam in Australia and Western Europe.
