Department of Islamic Studies and Arabic





Islamic Studies and Arabic Faculty Member Courses




This Department was established in the end of 1979 at City Campus of this University and was named the Department of Arabic, Islamic Studies and Research. Initially the Department launched M.A Islamic Studies program with a view to provide facilities for advanced studies and original research in the field of Islamic Studies. The department shifted to Arts Block at Main Campus in 1983 but again shifted to City Campus in 2006. The Program of M.A in Islamic Studies has been successfully continued since establishment of the department but M.A in Arabic program continued hardly for three sessions due to lack of interest of candidates. The department started M.Phil/ Ph.D programs in 2002 and 2004 respectively. Distance Education Program in the relevant fields is being offered by the department as well. The B.S 4 years Program in Islamic Studies will be launched shortly in the Department. The Department renamed as Department of Islamic Studies and Arabic during 2012. By the grace of ALLAH now it is a large department among the departments of Faculty of Arts.
