Islamic & Arabic Studies

The Islamic & Arabic Studies Department (IAS) is one of the academic departments under the College of General Studies. Since its establishment, the IAS department has worked in harmony with the needs of higher education in Saudi Arabia, and has remained consistent with university policy, placing great emphasis on the enhancement of Islamic culture and the moderate understanding of its meanings. The IAS department consists of two fields of study, Islamic Studies and Arabic Studies. As a supporting academic department, its role is not only limited to the academic teachings, but also includes research activities, social activities, and interaction with communities inside and outside KFUPM.
