Based in central London, the Aga Khan University Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations (ISMC) two-year MA Programme offers:
  • A distinctive way of understanding Muslim civilisations as they have evolved over time.
  • Stresses the plurality and complexity of past and present Muslim cultures, studying them as part of world cultures.
