This bachelor's programme offers you a rich, complete study of Islam. You become proficient at an academic level in Arabic, Qur'an and Hadith, 'Aqīda and Kalām, Tafsīr, Fiqh and History. At the same time you develop a perspective on the Dutch and Western/European context. You also delve into Islamic traditional and modern diversity in the fields of tafsīr and hermeneutics, fiqh law and context, ethics and contemporary issues, religious doctrine and praxis.

Core courses are always taken together with all students in the Bachelor of Theology and Religious Studies. These courses are in English. This means that the lecture hall is filled with students from different countries, cultures and faiths. You learn to enter into dialogue with other religions, world views, and philosophies. In the process, you learn to deal with practical challenges, diversity, and conflict management in a secular society and in the global context.
