SCHOOL OF ARTS AND HUMANITIES

MANARAT INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY (MIU)



The Department of Islamic Studies (DIS) is one of the significant departments in the school of Arts and Humanities at Manarat International University. Among all other departments, the DIS was an approved department by UGC at the beginning of MIU’s journey in 2001. It provides an excellent opportunity for the students to study Islamic knowledge with modern facilities. It gives quality education and moral values to create educated and moral human being who can work in national and international level. We have highly qualified and skilled faculty members having foreign degree and training.


PROGRAM DESIGN

The undergraduate program offers students courses that incorporate the theoretical and practical methods of study related to Qur’ān and Sunnah (the practices of the Prophet Muhammad (pbAuh), covering the theological and human sciences studies. It provides proper understanding of the worldview of Islam to meet the needs of global importance.

  1. The BA (Hons.) in Islamic Studies degree requires minimum duration of four (04) years. This four-year duration is divided into 12 semesters (Tri-semester). Each semester consists of 14 weeks, of which:
  2. The program includes teaching of 49 course units for a total of 4900 marks, which will be resulted in 140 credit hours. There will be 4400 marks for 44 taught course units and 100 marks for Dissertation/Fieldwork/Internship and 400 marks for Viva-Voce. Additionally, 04 non-Credit courses for Arabic Language are also offered in the regular program for enhancing Arabic Language skill and proficiency.
  3. Since the credit hours are counted based on lecture class/contact hours per week, the number of lecture classes/contact hours is determined according to the credits assigned to each course unit.
  4. The prospective students are usually required to take 03-05 courses (09-15 Credits) per semester. In any reasonable case, students may be allowed to take minimum 02 courses (6 credits) and maximum 06 courses (18 Credits) in a regular semester (Tri Semester System). 
  5. In the last academic semester, students may be allowed to take only Dissertation/Project/Fieldwork/Internship (04 Credits). Based on good and acceptable reason, 02 courses consist of 04 credits can also be taken by the students instead of Dissertation/Project/Fieldwork/Internship which will be of 100 marks.
  6. Dissertation/Project/Fieldwork/Internship: 
  7. In BA (Hons.) in Islamic Studies program, there will be an option for the students to do majoring in any of eight majors of this department. In that case students have to conduct at least 06 courses (18 credits) from specialized courses. Therefore, the degree will be as “BA (Hons.) in Islamic Studies (Major in ….)”.
  8. The students may have the opportunity for doing more than one majors at this department. For each major, they have to conduct at least 06 courses (18 credits) from those specialized courses.
  9. Students in regular program are required to conduct four (04) non-credit courses for enhancing their skill and proficiency in Arabic Language. As these are the non-credit courses, students have to obtain minimum pass marks (40%). However, these courses will also be open for all other students of this department as optional.

 

 

PROGRAM DURATION, MODE AND LANGUAGE
