Established as a legal entity in 2015, the Seminary operated for the first several years under the auspices of Muslim American Society (MAS) Boston, relying on MAS Boston and the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center for significant operational support during our startup phase.
Our first academic program, Continuing Education, was launched in the fall of 2016. Serving adult learners of all academic, spiritual and religious backgrounds, Continuing Education offered night and weekend options structured as college- or graduate-level courses. Students gained access to rigorous academic curriculum not only in the Islamic sciences, but also in topics of particular importance to the American-Muslim community. We expanded our offerings and reach during our first two years of Continuing Education by holding classes online and in multiple venues.
