About this Unit
In 2021 this unit replaced by 102823 - Islam: Past, Present and Future. This is an introductory level unit that forms part of the Islamic Studies major. The unit will contribute to the development of sound disciplinary expertise in the academic study of Islam – historical, anthropological, and sociological. The unit will familiarise students with critical approaches to the study of Islam that touch on its origins and development, formation of traditions, social structures and institutions as well as familiarising students with issues regarding Islam in the Western context. The unit will assist students to develop cross-cultural awareness and interaction, communication and interpersonal skills, inventiveness and a capacity for independent thinking and analysis and problem-solving skills.
