The Faculty of Theology and Islamic Studies

The Faculty of Theology and Islamic Studies was established in 1935 and was initially located in Sepahsālār College, presently known as Mutahhari University. It was offering three programs including Arabic literature, theoretical studies (Ulūm-i-Ma'qūl) and traditional studies (Ulūm-i-Manqūl). The faculty was closed after 5 years in 1940. In 1943, the faculty moved to the campus of the Iranian Academy, where it offered two programs in theoretical and traditional studies. Shortly after that, the faculty offered two more programs, i.e., Arabic language and literature as well as Islamic culture. Besides, it also offered PhD programs in theoretical and traditional studies. Formerly known as the "faculty of theoretical and traditional studies", the faculty's name was changed into the "faculty of theology and Islamic studies" in 1965.
