Zaytuna College is Now Accepting International Students

We are excited to announce that Zaytuna College has been approved to accept international students through the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP), and we will begin accepting applications for start dates as early as Fall 2018! As the first Muslim liberal arts college in the United States, Zaytuna offers an opportunity for international students to pursue an education under the guidance of scholars dedicated to the preservation of the Islamic spirit and the foundation of the liberal arts.


International students studying at Zaytuna College will receive a transformative educational experience, as they will become part of a living intellectual and spiritual tradition that is enhanced by an ongoing involvement with an active community of believers, the larger, multi-religious world around them, as well as the full range of daily trials and triumphs that characterize modern American society.


Students will work towards a Bachelor’s Degree in Islamic Law and Theology, and will be immersed in Zaytuna’s unique curriculum, which emphasizes key foundational texts; an in-depth examination of critical methodological issues; a command of the Arabic language; a familiarity with the most important Islamic sciences; and grounding in law, history, philosophy, science, astronomy, literature, ethics, and politics.


Our beautiful ten-acre historical campus situated at the top of “Holy Hill” in Berkeley California offers an accommodating academic environment that supports our students’ spiritual and intellectual endeavors. We welcome applications from all around the world, and the application and admissions process for international students is the same as it is for United States citizens. For answers to frequently asked questions about the application process for international students, visit our Q&A section which is accessible under the International Students - NEW dropdown option from our Admissions menu.
