The Department of Theology and Islamic Studies was founded in 1983 at the Faculty of Literature and Humanities, the purpose of which was to raise the religious knowledge of students by offering general courses in Islamic education. This was followed by the launch of the Bachelor's degree in theology and Islamic knowledge, and finally, the successful establishment of the Faculty of Theology and Islamic knowledge in 1392. Since 1374, the fields of Islamic philosophy and theology, Quranic sciences and hadith, and "jurisprudence and principles of Islamic law" have been gradually started in this department at both undergraduate and graduate levels, and the doctoral program in Islamic philosophy and theology has been added to the collection of the programs.

The historical background of Shiraz in various fields, from philosophy and mysticism to jurisprudence, interpretation and hadith, has caused Shiraz to take the title of Dar al-Elm for a long time. At present, the faculty has 57 adjunct and tenured faculty members working in three departments: 1- Islamic education (with five subdisciplines of Islamic thought, Islamic ethics, history of Islam, Quran and Nahj al-Balaghah, and Islamic Revolution) 2- Islamic philosophy and theology 3- The sciences of Quran and jurisprudence (with two fields of "Quranic sciences and hadith" and "jurisprudence and principles of Islamic law"). The faculty has about 350 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students and offers general courses to more than 7,500 undergraduate students in 14 credits each semester.
