Why is Cambridge Muslim College’s work so important?
Diploma in Leadership: Tackling challenges by developing local Muslim leadership
Cambridge Muslim College has been running a one-year Diploma in Contextual Islamic Studies & Leadership for the past eight years in order to enhance Muslim leadership in local communities to tackle the many challenges our communities face. Our alumni have returned to their communities to work in mosques, schools, hospitals and prisons as imams, teachers and chaplains. See a recent interview with alumnus Shaykh Saleem Seedat, an imam and chaplain in Blackburn.
BA(Hons) in Contextual Islamic Studies: Training the next generation of thinkers
In 2016, Cambridge Muslim College launched a BA (Hons) in Islamic Studies. Its degree status is subject to validation by an external university. This exciting degree combines the traditional sciences of fiqh, tafseer, hadith with a real understanding of where Muslims are in the modern context. We have recruited three lecturers in Islamic Studies to teach on the programme. The first cohort will begin their studies in Cambridge in September 2017.
Finding authentic and relevant answers
The College provides research opportunities for talented academics in bioethics, law, education, physics and a wide range of other academic fields. This original research is essential for developing authentic and relevant answers to the problems facing the modern world.
A vision for the future
Cambridge Muslim College is increasing the number of courses and programmes open to the general public, and has plans to provide online access to its programmes. As well as consolidating and expanding its teaching and research activities, the College is also developing architectural plans to build an exciting new centre on nearby land, which will make us a truly global centre of Islamic excellence.
