The Associates Degree in Islamic & Arabic Studies program is designed to give students a firm foundation in the core Islamic sciences. Our unique teaching methodology entails teaching our students the various viewpoints within the bounds of Ahl’ al-Sunnah. This approach provides students with an unbiased understanding of many schools of thought. At Madina, we believe in providing knowledge and information, not indoctrinating a particular point of view. This results in a well-rounded seeker of knowledge.
This program will also provide students with a strong foundation in the Arabic language with an emphasis on the skills of reading and comprehension. We look to provide our students with the tools needed to access the Quran and the traditional Islamic texts.
Students will also take electives in research, which will include a course on research methodologies and a course to conduct research on a specific topic and present their findings in a paper.
The program also entails electives in Quranic ethics to develop our students spiritually and to embody the message of the Quran. Students are also free to choose from other electives offered depending on their goals and interests, such as courses in further Islamic Leadership, Chaplaincy etc.
In addition the students can enroll to any number of elective courses which includes courses in Islamic Leadership, courses in Non-Violence and Peace Studies, advanced courses in Arabic, additional courses in Islamic Sciences etc.
