The BA Programme in Islamic Studies provides students with knowledge and understanding of the core textual tradition of Islam. They will also engage with religious, philosophical and wider intellectual discourses of Islam. Thus, it will ground students in Islamic core sources regarding the Qur’an and Sunnah. In addition, they will be introduced to Islamic history and civilisation, Islamic law and Islamic Theology & philosophy. This will allow them to have a rigorous academic approach to the study of Islam and Muslims. They will also critically look into the theological debates that have always occurred in Islamic thought. The students will be given a variety of courses to choose from in order to develop the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches to Islamic studies. As a result, they leave the Muslim College not only with linguistic and cultural expertise, but also with a variety of transferable skills. These include written and oral communication skills, attention to detail, analytical and problem-solving skills.
In order to be awarded a BA degree in Islamic Studies, the student will have to pass all the modules in all the terms, including the dissertation. However, those students who are not able to fulfil the BA requirements, will be offered exit routes with a certificate or diploma on the basis of their performance and on condition they have completed successfully a number of modules. The Diploma allows students to progress onto the BA level.
For entry requirements, all applicants MUST have a minimum of one B and two C grades at A-level or its equivalent .Students from the darul Ulooms can be admitted at the right level depending on their qualifications.
