• About

    In 2009, Zaytuna College was founded in Berkeley, California, with a mission that called for grounding students in the Islamic scholarly tradition as well as in the cultural currents and critical ideas shaping modern society.

  • Academics

    As a Muslim liberal arts college in the West, Zaytuna offers a curriculum that provides its students with a foundation in the intellectual heritage of two major world civilizations: the Islamic and the Western.

  • Admissions & Aid

    Our mission is to educate students to become morally, intellectually, and spiritually accomplished individuals ready to contribute to our contemporary world in ways that are proportionate to their gifts and to the needs of human society.

  • Campus Life

    Zaytuna’s campus is on Holy Hill and students enter the College as part of a cohort, a community of learners that travel together through the curriculum.

Give The Gift Of Knowledge

Preserve Knowledge. Preserve Beauty.

As inheritors of a tradition of hope, we believe that the world will—as it did for centuries—once again know Muslims as a source of beneficial knowledge and service for all of humanity. We’re committed to educating tomorrow’s leaders, but also to contributing to the commonweal today through public scholarship and education. Your gift of knowledge helps our students—unburdened by debt and empowered by the study of the Islamic and the Western intellectual traditions—begin to transform the world, God-willing.
