Degree Programs

The goal of the graduate program at TISA is to produce scholars and leaders of Islam imbued with Islamic knowledge, professional expertise, counseling skills, critical thinking and Islamic character. TISA offers two Master of Arts degrees and one Master of Divinity degree. TISA has a collaborative relationship with SMU such that students can take SMU’s Master in Graduate Liberal Studies along with a TISA degree or certificate.

To qualify to enter the M.A. or M.Div program, a student must have a B.A. or equivalent. Students who apply as an “Auditor” or “Attendee” do not need a B.A. to be able to take courses, but they will not receive credit for any courses that they might take.

Graduate Certificates are also offered. See the page for Graduate Certificates.
