Moreover, B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. students graduating in this major are expected to be knowledgeable in the fields of logic and mysticism.

Founded in 1975, the Master’s program for Philosophy and Theosophy aims to make students familiar with philosophical and divine issues in the Islamic as well as Western world. The aim of this program is to enhance students’ capabilities in defending the Islamic principles and ideology.

The doctoral program has been admitting candidates since 2011. This program aims to help students to become knowledgeable about Mulla Sadra’s philosophical theory.
