Welcome to Respect Graduate School
Respect Graduate School (RGS) offers affordable classes designed to develop expertise in every area of the Islamic Sciences. RGS also provides a friendly environment where students from any cultural background can feel comfortable to freely explore and express their ideas in a safe classroom setting. Aside from offering an academically stimulating environment, RGS also features a unique spiritual element aimed at nourishing the student's connection to their faith, that may otherwise be missing in another non-Muslim institution.More Info
Beginning July 1, 2018, Respect Graduate School will no longer offer courses for academic credit toward the degree Master of Arts in Islamic Studies (MAIS) and will not enroll new students in that program. In place of offering courses for academic credit, RGS will offer courses of study and workshops that lead to earning certificates of competence in the several fields of Islamic Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies. The languages of instruction for specific offerings include English, Turkish and Arabic. Such courses and workshops will use online components as well as on campus settings. The new certificate-level format will start in September 2018. RGS will continue to be guided by its mission to serve the Muslim and wider communities with relevant and effective programs.
I have found every class insightful, interesting and challenging.
It is so thrilling to know that the opportunity to obtain a graduate degree in Islamic studies exists through Respect.
