In the last one or two decades, an interesting trend has emerged that Islamic universities not only in Indonesia but also in several other countries including Malaysia have been developing an integrative paradigm in the management of higher education, as well as in the development of science. In Indonesia, several State Islamic Universities [UIN], and several private universities, such as UNIDA Gontor, have also developed academic traditions that integrate science and Islam, even developing science in the frame "Islamic worldview." From the philosophical aspect, the development of the scientific tradition in some of these universities has given rise to fundamental problems: is it possible for science that is developed with religion to be scientific? It is indeed a fundamental problem since the view, so far, to meet scientific and objective criteria, science must be avoided from the element of the subjectivity of scientists, and eliminate the intersubjectivity of tradition and culture. So, with the incessant discourse on the integration of science and religion, the philosophy of science must view it as a current issue that needed to be resolved. Further reflection on the philosophical view is that the basis for the development of science -which consists of theory, paradigm, and theological assumptions- ensures that the development of religion-based science is indeed possible, and more than that, it guarantees to avoid ideological and pseudoscientific patterns. Along with the opening of religious territory in scientific buildings, it can consequently open a new dimension in science, in which scientific work can no longer deny the religious context. That new dimension is the theological dimension of science, and that is the theology of science
