"Islam Today” is a non-official master’s degree offered by the University of Granada in order to fill the gap in postgraduate programs offered at Spanish universities, and respond to the existing demand for studies specialized in Islam, as a religion (exegesis, doctrine), a cultural phenomenon and a social component, as well as in Islamism. Registration and grant applications are open until October 27.
  • The first edition of the Master’s Program “Islam Today. Trends of Islamic Thought and the Management of Coexistence and Diversity”, will be take place from November 2016 to June 2017 at the Euro-Arab Foundation for Higher Studies.
  • Registration and grant applications are open until October 27.

The main objective of this Master’s Degree is to provide in-depth knowledge regarding Islamic contemporary thought, history of Arab and Islamic societies and their interweaving in Europe and in Western culture. Not only as a reference of past history and legacy, but as part of the building of European societies through the transfer of knowledge and the active presence of Islam and of Muslims in Europe. This Master’s Degree offers a wide range of subjects that will provide the keys to understanding contemporary Islamic thought. Therefore this program belongs to the field of study focused on the Islamic world, Islamology, which has to a certain extent been marginalized in university study programs.   

This Master’s Degree is a unique postgraduate program in Spain, thanks to the topics it tackles and to the excellent faculty members. It counts with the presence of numerous specialists from United Arab Emirates, Egypt, United States, Lebanon, Morocco, Mauritania, Jordan, Senegal and Tunisia.

It also counts with the presence of representatives of civil society and authorities of Islam in Europe; and with a wide representation of professors of several Spanish universities (Granada, Madrid and Alicante) and from a wide range of disciplines: Historians, philosophers, sociologists, anthropologists, theologians; introducing as well different approaches such as gender and postcolonial studies.

The Master’s Program “Islam Today” is part of the program of the Chair of Studies in Islamic Civilization and Renewal of Religious Thought, which, in its headquarters in the city of Granada, develop the EuroArab Foundation and the Mominoun Foundation without borders of Studies and Research.
