Mission & Philosophy

Our Mission
The mission of American Islamic College is to provide students of all backgrounds with a solid liberal arts and sciences education that will include a rigorous academic formation in Islamic Studies, thereby conveying a broad understanding of the historical and global forces that have shaped intellectual debates and interpretations, as well as, the political and social structures of diverse contemporary Muslim societies.

Our Philosophy
Our innovative interdisciplinary educational program, while grounded in Islamic learning, will be committed to promoting inter-religious and inter-cultural understanding, responsible world citizenship, and engaged social service. Furthermore, the American Islamic College will expose the general public to the rich heritage and the contemporary realities of Muslim cultures through community outreach activities, academic symposia and seminars, and dynamic exchange and immersion programs.
