The information provided on this page was correct at the time of publication (November 2019). For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The MPhil in Islamic Art and Archaeology is a two-year course combining comprehensive training in the history of Islamic art, architecture and archaeology, research, and language instruction. The course is designed for students with little or no background in Islamic art and archaeology who wish also to learn Arabic or Persian or Ottoman Turkish. The MPhil in Islamic Art and Archaeology is suitable either as a stand-alone course or as a stepping stone to doctoral research. You will have a supervisor at the Khalili Research Centre, who will guide your progress through the course and who will agree with you a programme of work and a timetable for each term of the course, including: general skills and research specific training, formal teaching and instruction, attendance at lectures and seminars, and regular meetings (normally at least twice per term) with the supervisor for detailed discussion on your progress. You will be expected to attend tutorials, classes, lectures and seminars regularly, and your tutors and language instructors will give you regular assignments of written work. During the first year, you will attend eight practical classes which introduce techniques to describe and analyse buildings and objects in a range of media (such as ceramics, epigraphy, manuscripts, metalwork, numismatics, and textiles) and which provide training with basic academic skills (such as presentation of work in a lecture or seminar, and writing museum display and book reviews). You will submit a portfolio containing assignments from these practical classes at the end of the first year, but this portfolio will not be examined until the end of the second year. Tutors and language instructors report to your supervisor on your progress at the end of each term, and the supervisor will write a formal report upon your work and progress during the term. The structure of the examinations for the course is as follows: At the end of the first year of the course you must sit the qualifying examination, consisting of two elements. The first is a three-hour written examination on Introduction to Islamic Art and Archaeology, reflecting the lectures, seminars and tutorials offered during the year. The second element is a language examination in Arabic or Persian or Ottoman Turkish, which will test progress in the elementary study of the relevant language made during the year. At the end of the second year, the final examination is taken, which consists of six elements. You will be expected to spend part of the vacation between years one and two engaged in language study and/or fieldwork in a region appropriate to your area of interest. Further information on the course, and the examination process, can be found in the course handbook via the course webpage.
