A number of students are showing growing interest in Islamic Studies. I opted for this study course because I wish to become an Islamic scholar and project a true picture of the Islamic faith. This study course is conducted by an experienced faculty and signing up for this subject has truly been an enlightening experience. It is also a great start for students looking forward to pursuing their doctorate.

The Social Integration Program-previously known as the Social Internship Program (SIP) of the GIFT University Gujranwala emphasizes the value of service with others, rather than the commonly accepted concept of service to others. The goal is to create "better communities" in the Region by encouraging students to serve their communities. The program also aims to promote active citizenship by making social action a fundamental part of every student’s life.
