Abstract

Historically human societies have built kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities to educate their children and youths. Their children are taught first reading, writing, calculating and other basic skills during their primary schooling ages. After they complete their primary education, they join the secondary education, the college and then university education. Probably some universities have some differences in their aims or goals due to their national and international conditions and demands. However, generally speaking, a university education has four connected goals namely dissemination of knowledge, training of people for the preservation and progress of the society and nation, training of researchers for the preservation and expansion of knowledge, and enhancing of inner potential of individuals. In May 1970, National University of Malaysia (NUM) was established to provide a university education for Malaysians and non-Malaysians. In that historic year, the university opened its doors to the undergraduate degree programs in its three faculties namely faculties of Science, Arts and Islamic Studies. The Faculty of Islamic Studies was the first and pioneering faculty in Malaysian university history since the oldest the University of Malaya had a department of Islamic studies in the Faculty of Arts when it was established in Kuala Lumpur in early 1960s. The initial campus of NUM was located near the oldest university before it moved to its new permanent campus located in Bangi, Selangor, Malaysia in 1980s. This paper presents human capital or human resource contributed by the Faculty of Islamic Studies (FIS) of NUM through its undergraduate and graduate degrees programs to Malaysian and foreign students. In offering its undergraduate and graduate programs to Malaysian and foreign students, FIS of NUM has to take into consideration the demands or requirements of an international standard organization (ISO) to become an international research and teaching university. NUM has been one of the research universities in Malaysia since 2006.
