The article focuses on Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies (QFIS) which is distinct from the other higher education establishments at the Education City in Doha, Qatar, as it is not a satellite of a U.S. university. QFIS began offering its general diploma in Islamic studies in 2007 and soon hopes to launch two new master of arts programs in religion and contemporary thought, and contemporary Muslim studies, as well as a master of science in Islamic urban planning and architecture.
