ADULT ISLAMIC EDUCATION
California Islamic University offers a full time program of study which caters to English speaking Muslims. We have attempted to combine the best and most practical ways of studying Islam, while remaining within the paradigm of an Islamic worldview. CIU focuses not only on academic and educational development, but also stresses the importance of spiritual and moral education. By emphasizing the realization that Islam is a holistic way of life manifested in all layers of society, our classes prepare students to become assets to the community at large.
A UNIQUE METHODOLOGY
We loathe overspecializing in only a few subjects. A balanced Islamic education requires that Theology, Islamic Law, History, Hermeneutics and other subjects all be studied at a foundational level. We give students the tools to understand and connect with Islamic teachings on a deeper level.
Everything we teach is based on the Qur’an and the authentic teachings of the Prophet [Sunnah]. When there is room for different interpretations, rather than pushing a particular school of thought in theology or jurisprudence, we maintain respect for legitimate scholarly differences of opinion.

ARE YOU READY TO START LEARNING ?
We strongly believe that a sound Islamic education is the right of every individual and that no one’s financial situation should ever prevent them from learning about Islam. That is why the courses at California Islamic University are only $50/unit (or $30/unit to audit), which is much more affordable than most colleges in America.
For those whose circumstances prevent them from paying for classes up-front, we offer financial aid in the form of interest-free loans to help cover the cost of tuition. Such financial aid is on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on the funds we have available.
