CASIS offers two research programmes under the School of Graduate Studies (SPS):

  1. MLPGA3AKA Master of Philosophy in Islamic Civilisation, and
  2. PLPGA3AKA Doctor of Philosophy in Islamic Civilisation.CASIS Program Code

Both programmes are research based, which means students are required to produce a thesis reflecting an academic work worthy of such degrees. Graduate Seminars are held each semester to give the opportunity for students to present their research proposals as well as progress reports to the academicians of CASIS. Even though our programmes are research based, students are required to complete a set of courses that would help them develop the required theoretical framework true to the vision of the centre. Courses include the mastery of Arabic language, Fundamentals in `Aqidah and Shari`ah of Islam, Worldview and Epistemic Frameworks, Dewesternisation and Islamisation of Contemporary Knowledge, Islamic Philosophy of Science and Methodology of Science, and other relevant courses. Visit the courses page for details.
