The world's first Bachelor of Tolerance and Coexistence degree is coming to the UAE.

The Mohamed Bin Zayed University for Humanities on Thursday announced the launch of the one-of-a-kind degree programme, with courses starting in September 2021.

According to the university, the programme will be based on the seven pillars of the UAE National Tolerance Programme, and will include courses that promote the UAE's values of co-existence, as inspired by its late founder Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

Courses in the programme will cover the role of media, comparative religion and moderate Islam.

The aim of the initiative is to instil a culture of tolerance in graduates and motivate them to contribute to sustainable social development.

It will also provide a "variety of employment opportunities" for graduates of the programme.
