Apply to the M.A. in Applied Islamic Ethics


The Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE), and the College of Islamic Studies (CIS) at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU), cordially announce the opening of applications for the MA in Applied Islamic Ethics (AIE), the first program of its kind worldwide.


The pioneer Masters program in Applied Islamic Ethics addresses how Islam, as a world religion with a profound moral heritage, contributes to and engages with global ethical discourses. Offering a robust blend of theoretical and applied ethics deeply rooted in Islamic traditions, it is designed to equip students with the skills required to master the tools of theoretical ethics and to apply them to address leading-edge ethical dilemmas from the perspective of the rich Islamic ethical tradition.

The overall structure of the program is designed to balance two main aspects: ‘the academic aspect’ of Islamic ethics, through a scholarly approach rooted in the Islamic tradition; and the ‘applied aspect’, to improve students’ skills in addressing the vexing ethical dilemmas and questions that people face in contemporary times for the prospective market of professional work.
