MASTER’S DEGREE IN ISLAMIC EDUCATION

The Master’s Degree in Islamic Education encompasses two tracks with three options.

  • For students who have not completed a teaching certification elsewhere, successfully completing the two tracks (40 credit hours) will entitle the Master’s candidate to a Master’s Degree in Islamic Education.
  • Certified teachers, who have already completed their teaching certification from an accredited university or college, are only required to complete the Islamic Studies track (19 credit hours). Guidance College will accept their teacher certificate as dual credit and grant them a Master’s Degree in Islamic Education.
  • Students who only wish to earn a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Islamic Studies are not required to complete the teaching portion of the program. Completing the Islamic Studies course list (total of 19 credit hours) would result in earning a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Islamic Studies.
