One challenging process is, however, to prepare a transformed curriculum for different students. This study aims at illustrating curriculum development process of general religious study subject for university students. The curriculum has been adjusted to be delivered for specific Muslim students into multi-religious-background students.

This is a qualitative study that utilizes library research, participant observation, as well as interviews as main source of data collections. The observation has been focused in Tanri Abeng University. The university shares unique characteristics in terms of religious studies and therefore important and functional for kind of comparison. Data was collected during May to July 2018. This study discovers that mainstreaming of religious values has been accepted by students of religious studies with multicultural backgrounds in religion. This mainstreaming of religious values has made the connection between the students closer and stronger. This unique approach has enabled the students with different backgrounds of religion to find a common ground among them without harming their own belief.
