As a reference book, we list
"Modular forms and Galois cohomology" (Cambridge studies in advanced mathematics 69).

Topics: I would touch the following topics in this course:

Good understanding of commutative and non-commutative algebra, algebraic number theory and very basics of Galois cohomology.
