Due to the program being online many of our students have families, work, and other commitments that they attend to. Although this is fine, we recommend that our students schedule their time so that they can watch all the sessions as well as review the content outside of class.
Madina Institute USA is not accredited at this time. However, Madina Institute in South Africa is accredited with a 3-Year Bachelor’s Degree in Islamic Studies.
At the moment, we are not hosting programs on-site, so there is no student housing. All programs will be offered online until further notice.
Our programs entail core subjects to ensure all of our students have a strong foundation in the program they have chosen. Therefore the carefully selected curriculum for Islamic Sciences & Arabic Studies is standardized. However, students do have the option of choosing non-required electives that are of interest to them, based on the program they are enrolled in. For more info on each of the courses we offer check our Curriculum page.
