Master’s degree

Master’s Degree Program 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 (41 credit hours) will entitle the Master’s candidate to a Master’s Degree in Islamic Education.
  • Certified teachers, who have also already completed a secular Master’s degree in Education, from an accredited university or college, may be able to transfer Master’s level classroom management and child development courses.  Thereby, decreasing the time needed to complete their Master’s degree in Islamic Education.
  • Students who only wish to earn a Graduate Certificate in Islamic Studies are not required to complete the teaching portion of the program. Completing the Islamic Studies course list (total of 20 credit hours) would result in earning a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Islamic Studies.
