MA in Islamic Studies (MAIS)
The Islamic Online University (IOU) has launched the world’s first tuition-free Master’s degree in Islamic Studies program, which is offered completely online and in English as a medium of instruction. This is an excellent opportunity for the BA students to continue, further, and enhance their understanding and knowledge of the religion. This graduate program consists of 18 courses, three semesters of six subjects each, and the master’s thesis in the fourth semester. The regular duration of the program is two years. Nevertheless, students may complete it within one and half years minimum. One can take a maximum of six years to complete the program. In general, higher education will enable students to expand their knowledge and skills, and be more effective and eloquent in speech and writing. For those who wish to enter the working field, higher education is a great asset in acquiring valuable and respected positions. To be specific, higher education in Islamic studies will provide the opportunity to earn beneficial knowledge that will enable one—by the will and mercy of Allah—to perfect their religion, and obtain the pleasure of Allah by seeking and spreading knowledge of His religion. It is, in fact, one of the ways to gain sadaqa jariya (continuous rewards). It is evident that the more one knows, the more one can share. And the more one shares, the more one can gain which enables to reach higher levels of paradise. The knowledgeable and the ignorant is never the same...

This programme is a rigorous and intellectually challenging introduction to philosophical ethics, and, in particular, applied or “practical” ethics, based in the Department of Philosophy. It is designed for professionals in the Gauteng region with some management and leadership experience and presupposes no background in philosophy. It is not a programme in “professional ethics”—e.g. business ethics, biomedical ethics, technology and ethics, etc.—though some such material is sometimes covered in one or more of the electives. Rather, its emphasis is on learning methods and techniques for thinking about ethical issues of any sort. It includes exposure to the principal ethical theories and critical examination of some well-known work in various sub-fields of applied ethics. It is not a distance-education programme; regular attendance at seminars is required. To accommodate the professional lives of our participants, seminars, exams, and other programme activities are held on Saturday mornings, about 19 in the first year and 10 in the second....
