The Master of Arts in Islamic Studies is offered to thought leaders, administrators, educators, or professionals who seek a deeper understanding of the beliefs and values of Islam together with the needs of dominant faith communities that interact with the Christian religion in the Middle East North Africa region. 


The instructional environment of our program provides a real life context of living in an Islamic and Middle East setting dealing with the experience of Christian-Islamic coexistence. It seeks to provide knowledge, understanding, skills, and attitudes that promote respect and dialogue in the context of the Islamic religious understanding. 


The program provides a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to Islamic faith and practice, culture and society, language, history, and ethics, from a biblical and Seventh-day Adventist perspective.
