The approach encompasses a holistic approach towards the delivery of knowledge that unites the Science of Revelation (Naqli) and Science of Rational ('Aqli). 

USIM offers a unique model for higher education in Islam, which distinguishes it from other Islamic universities around the world. The integration of religion with social and physical sciences in all USIM academic program, has provided a comprehensive understanding and offer new approaches and solutions to current global problems.

The education paradigm at USIM is based on the basic principle that integrating religious sciences with social and physical sciences will not only provide a more comprehensive understanding of current global challenges, but also offer a fresh alternative in approaching and solving them. This is because of the universal nature of Islamic values, and history has proven that these values can be shared by all humankind; living together harmoniously with mutual respect and tolerance. It is also an effort towards reviving the scientific and technological feats of Muslim scholars in the past and moving it forward. USIM graduates are moulded within this ethos, so that they are not only able to function as professionals in their respective disciplines effectively, but at the same time are ready to contribute and make a difference to the society in the Islamic tradition.
USIM is committed to be excellent in three tracks in terms of its academic programmes and research. The tracks are;

  1. Islamic Studies, Quran and Sunnah
