Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Studies

The Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Studies is a four-year sequence of instructional coursework that culminates in the Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. The Islamic Studies component of the Program features content and pedagogy commensurate with the disciplines of Islamic and Religious Studies, Qur’anic and Hadith studies, Islamic legal theory, classical Islamic theology and philosophy, Islamic spirituality, and allied social science, economic and political theories.
Students must also fulfill standard Bachelor’s level requirements in general education, imparting a solid foundation in the humanities as well as the social and physical sciences. Upon completion, graduates will be prepared to pursue academic, occupational and career options, which are appropriately aligned with this field of study.

Population(s) Served

The Master of Arts in Islamic Studies Program offers a two-year sequence of instructional coursework that culminates in the Master of Arts (MA) degree. The MA Program provides students with a rigorous background in both traditional and analytical approaches to Islamic Studies. All students are required to complete a central core or obligatory seven (7) course or twenty-one (21) credit hours of foundational instruction in Islamic Studies. These courses include Arabic, Academic Study of Islam, Reading and Interpreting the Qur’an, Prophetic Biography and Hadith Literature, Islamic Ethics and Spirituality, Islam and Gender Studies, and Great Debates within Muslim Theology.
The Program offers students two distinct areas of concentration in either Islamic Theology or Islam and Global Studies. MA students are required to take a minimum of five courses (15 credit hours) in their concentration, including a Masters Thesis or Masters Research Project that will count as one, three credit-hour course.

Population(s) Served

The Graduate Masters of Divinity in Islamic Studies is a three to four year program designed specifically for students who wish to become professional and credentialed Muslim leaders, spiritual care givers, or chaplains. The curriculum, presented below, was developed in consultation with some of the most prominent Muslim chaplains, therapists, bioethicists, and spiritual care givers in America, and, as a result, it offers a richness of practical education in conversation with contemporary counseling and psychology education. Our program development consultation partners also included some of America’s leading Jewish and Christian seminaries, and so students enrolling in this program benefit from the best of expert opinion, even across the boundaries of tradition.
