The vision of The Alkaram Institute is to become the first Muslim graduate school of psychology in the United States – an accredited degree granting institution of higher education that trains tomorrow’s Muslim professionals in research and applied domains of psychology at both masters and doctoral levels. This is a much longer-term goal as it requires large amounts of financial and infrastructural resources that we hope to have in the coming years. In the shorter term, our online (non-degree) Islamic Psychology courses will begin Fall 2021. Stay tuned for announcements on this coming in Spring 2021.
We also offer an Islamic Psychology Research Fellowship where we support graduate students anywhere in the world who would like to do their masters thesis or doctoral dissertation on Islamic Psychology but whose home university does not have faculty with the requisite expertise. This Fellowship is also open to (non-student) professionals wanting to advance an area of IP scholarship but who need support in doing so. For more information on this initiative, click here.
