The Department of Islamic Economics and Banking was established as an independent unit at Yarmouk University in January, 2001. It came as a response to the growing need for specialists in the fields of Islamic Economics and Banking. The Department aims at providing Islamic societies with highly trained graduates in the above mentioned fields. It offers B.A. and M.A as well as Ph.D. degrees in these fields.
The Department is equipped with highly professional faculty members and has many contacts with government and non-government agencies through consultations, studies, and lectures. To enhance research in the field of Islamic Economics, Sheik Saleh Kamel’s Chair for Islamic Economics has been established as a unit within the Department.
