You Asked. So We Found a Solution.
Who Is This For?
The online 1-year seminary program is designed for students who want to further their Islamic Studies, but are unable to enroll in a full-time 'Alimiyah program and move their lives to Dallas. We are looking for dedicated and serious students who have the means to excel in an online learning environment, can stay on top of the curriculum, and prioritize their time around homework and review.
Difference between the On-campus and Online student experiences?
How Does It Work?
With our online seminary platform, you'll receive the full-immersive classroom experience. You'll have the opportunity to sit in on lectures at the same time as on-campus students and will be paired with a teaching assistant. All questions you may have during class can be messaged to your TA and you'll receive same day responses and feedback.
Online students have two options: They can either register as full-time students or part-time students. Full-time online seminary students must complete 9 courses in the academic year (3 courses a semester) to graduate. Part-time students have the option of taking whichever course(s) they desire each semester.
What Will Graduates Accomplish?
Graduates will be prepared to serve their communities as educators, youth directors, assistant imams, and other capacities. Students who complete this program will be able to:
- Teach Seerah, Quran, Tajweed, basic Hadith collections, everyday Fiqh etc.
- Deliver effective Khutbahs and teach workshops for their local communities.
- Develop modern and effective curricula for Sunday Schools.
- Provide direction and Islamic teaching at Islamic schools.
- Serve as full-time youth directors, or as an assistant Imam capacity to an existing scholar.
- Pursue upper level advanced Islamic studies.
