Emphasis will be placed on primary texts in the original language (Arabic). The English-spoken MA program includes three actual classroom meetings during the academic year (the Introductory Week as well as two colloquia at different locations) during which the students and teachers will come together for discussion, teaching and examination. There is no tuition fee.
