Institution University of Cambridge
Department Middle Eastern Studies
Study type Taught


The Muslim-Jewish Relations pathway is designed for highly motivated students who would like to develop their knowledge and understanding of Muslim-Jewish relations, together with the research skills necessary to carry out independent primary research work to a high academic standard through engagement with primary sources in one or more Middle Eastern languages. Graduates will be well placed to pursue further research in a PhD programme, in NGOs, charities, government, education, or in any other field where cultural understanding, linguistic skills and high-level critical thinking, analysis and communication skills are needed.

Learning Outcomes The pathway in Muslim-Jewish Relations will equip its graduates with the skills and knowledge to research aspects of Muslim-Jewish relations independently and effectively, including further development of their skills in reading source materials in Arabic, Hebrew or Persian. Graduates will also be able to show a sophisticated understanding of the wider field of Middle Eastern Studies and the ability to communicate their knowledge and their research findings effectively.

Continuing All applicants should submit, via the Applicant Portal, a workable and relevant research proposal and demonstrate that they have the required academic knowledge and skills to carry out their project.
