Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Studies

> Course Details


Islamic Online University launched the world’s first tuition-free, online Bachelor’s Degree program in Islamic Studies – in English . This is a major step towards helping Muslims across the globe to fulfill the Prophet’s command to seek knowledge of the religion and to correct and enhance their understanding of its tenets.

The program consists of recorded audio and video lectures and weekly live tutorial classes in a virtual classroom. The syllabus is based on the bachelor’s degree program in Usool ud-Deen (Religious Foundations) of Madeenah University, Saudi Arabia, Omdurman Islamic University, Sudan, Al-Azhar University, Egypt and other similar reputable Islamic institutions. Six subjects are offered in each semester of five month duration. There is an online mid-term exam after two and a half months of study and a supervised online final exam at the end of the fifth month. Students can access their classes according to their convenience. However, assignments have to be turned in, and exams (mid-term and final) have to be taken at fixed times.

Studying with the Islamic Online University is affordable, and manageable. We are an institute that seeks its reward from Allah, and therefore do not charge tuition fees. There is just a semester registration fee which is calculated on a sliding scale (from $70 to $160) depending on the student’s country of residence.
