Since the establishment of the first high quality MA program in Islamic Studies nationwide, it reflected a generalized degree study on Islam. The new additions of specializations musing as UP-IIS response to the exigencies of changing (modern) times. This contemplation resulted to several months of curriculum revision and development that culminated on a 2-day writeshop/workshop held on 24-25 November 2017 at the La Breza Hotel, Quezon City. The Master of Arts in Islamic Studies will have four specializations.
1. Islamic Thought and Civilization
2. International Relations (Siyar) of the Ummah
3. History and Society of Muslims in the Philippines
4. Islamic Law (Muslim Personal Laws of the Philippines)
These curriculum changes and revisions are not yet final. They are subjected to approval from university’s administrators. In addition, the UP administration counterpart is to provide us building to house all our programs and support us in our initiative as we are contributing to nation building inline with university’s mandate.
