Why Islamic Studies?

  • Opportunity to broaden, deepen and enrich their understanding of Islam.
  • Promote the appreciation of Islamic ethics and code of personal practice.
  • Prepare students to contribute in Islamic, multi-religious and cultural environments.
  • Equip students with the skills they need to pursue lifelong learning.

BA in Islamic Studies (English & Tamil)


  1. To enable students to correctly understand the fundamental principles of underlying Islamic Teachings.
  2. To prepare the students on doctrines and Jurisprudence of Islam.
  3. To enable students to serve as faithful representatives of a practiced Islam.

Programme Outcomes

The BAIS learners will be able to understand

  1. The Islamic religious tradition within historical, social and cultural contexts;
  2. Visual, performative and oral expressions of the heritage of Islam, including language, literature, art, and architecture;
  3. Intra-Islamic differences and issues of inter-cultural diversity and integration within the Islamic world;
  4. The political systems of Muslim majority countries.

Course Specific Outcomes

  1. The students will acquire necessary skills in reading and using both classical and modern Arabic. Without these skills they cannot expect to access the vast treasury of Islamic thought and culture, still less to benefit by interrogating it critically.
  2. Arabic remains the common language among Islamic scholars from different parts of the world and is therefore essential for the exchange of perspectives and experiences. We enable the students to read the Qur’aan and Qur’aanic commentary, so that they understand how its teaching educates conscience and behaviour.
  3. They will be able to explain others, s well as understand for themselves, how the guidance of the Qur’aan relates to contemporary issues and circumstances.

The Bachelor of Islamic Studies has been designed for those who desire to gain authentic Islamic knowledge correctly derived from the Qur’aan as understood by the early generations of righteous scholars. The students represent a diverse group coming from all over Tamil Nadu.

Duration of the Programme and Support System:

It is an Undergraduate programme of 3 Year duration.
