Foreword by the Vice President of Research and Graduate Studies

In the name of Allah, most gracious, and most merciful


Peace, mercy and blessings of God be upon you.


Allow me to welcome you through this webpage of the Research and Postgraduate Affairs at the Islamic University of Gaza. Since the university's establishment in 1978, it has realized the importance of research and its role in serving the community. In fact, the great effort of the university's researchers has had a positive influence on other local educational institutions.

The Islamic University of Gaza (IUG) offers more than 25 Post graduate MA Programs and recently added 3 PHD programs. The number of research centers at the university is increasing and improvement of the existing ones is a continuing process. Due to this, academic staff, researchers and students of the university have won several national and international prizes and awards for their distinguished efforts.

Despite all the obstacles we face, we will remain committed to the support, encouragement and increase of the research efforts of our faculty, staff and students .

IUG welcomes, with open arms, any opportunity for cooperation with local and international institutions in its quest to serve humanity.
