The department of Islamic Studies aims to promote the study of Islamic thoughts and offers an opportunity to study Islam on Under Graduate & Graduate level. The Department of Islamic Studies provides students a broader understanding of the role of religion in human life. The aim is to create the context for discussion that allows students to explore academic and personal questions about religion and society. The students are encouraged to exercise their freedom of expression with respect to diversity.


Religion is among the most powerful, profound and enduring aspects of life. Islamic Studies is concerned with the ideas through which religion is communicated: how it developed, what it means, whether it is true and how it may be reformulated. Study of Islam demands a wide range of knowledge, considerable insight, and care in interpretation, whether you are a student or a teacher. The Department of Islamic Studies at SBKWU offers you the opportunity to acquire knowledge, methods, skills, and capabilities necessary to understand and evaluate ideas of Islam achieving the hallmark of pure academic and research atmosphere.
