Fethullah Gülen Chair in the Study of Islam and Muslim-Catholic Relations
The Fethullah Gulen Chair is aimed at providing academic leadership in research, teaching and community engagement in relation to the study of Islam. The Chair has been founded with full recognition of the plurality and diversity of Islam itself. The Chair will conduct leading-edge, internationally competitive research, assist in developing academic programs, and work towards promoting greater mutual understanding between Muslims and Catholics both in Australia and throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
The Chair is a partnership with the Australian Intercultural Society, a non-government organisation aimed at promoting greater dialogue between Australia’s various faith communities.

The Master of Theology (Research) is a higher degree by research that can be undertaken by thesis. It provides students with substantial background in Theology (in Islamic Studies) and preliminary research training with the opportunity to undertake a major piece of theological research in a specialised area.
The Doctor of Philosophy course aims to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for the conduct of individual research at a level that will make a distinct contribution to the knowledge base of the Islamic sciences.
