Diploma Program (Online)


Diploma Program (Online) is a part time program for the post-secondary level that covers various specializations in religious disciplines via online. In addition to the study of the core sciences of religion in their own specializations such as al-Quran, al-Hadith and al-Syariah and Aqidah, this program also emphasizes the aspects of contextualization and application.
