Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Studies
> Course Details
The International Open University launched the world’s first online Bachelor’s Degree program in Islamic Studies in English. This is a major step towards helping Muslims across the globe 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 a 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 International Open University is affordable and manageable. We are an institute that seeks its reward from Allah, and therefore 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.
