The Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences in Ashburn, Virginia is accepting applications for the second year of its new intensive graduate degree in Social Studies: Islamic Studies. The program offers the opportunity for students to complete a 36 credit hour MA degree program in ten months of full-time study, beginning in September of each year. The program is designed for a cohort of students who attend consecutive, accelerated courses.
The focus of the program is to develop a strong background in Islamic sources and their relationship with social sciences. This background is presented in an environment intended to nurture and develop open-minded, integrated, well-adjusted and morally upright students. The program prepares graduates for a career in community service, education or non-profit organizations. The program is also intended for specialists in social studies who would like to explore the broad possibilities, which an Islamic worldview based upon Quranic principles can illuminate in their respective fields.
Tuition waivers, financial aid and a limited number of competitive fellowship stipends are available for the 2005 – 2006 academic year.
