Dean’s message

Dear Students and Members of Our Community,

At the newly formed Faculty of Arts & Sciences we are very enthusiastic about our new offers and the response of the community. A first in Lebanon, we are now offering a bachelor’s degree in Criminology, which from its very first year has attracted a large number of students, and for good reason. This is a major very much needed in our part of the world and we have recruited a number of judges and scholars to help us develop its program, making it relevant to the needs of the country and in line with the advancements in the discipline internationally.

We have also established a major in Education, attentive to the needs of our northern community. The program allows students majoring in the field to focus on disciplines of specific interest to them. In addition, we are also offering majors in Chemistry and English Language. Our bachelor’s in media and communication has broadened its course offerings to reflect the diversity as well as the convergence of different areas in that discipline.

We will continue to move forward with state-of-the-art programs and ideas that prepare our students for the current and the future media markets.

Preparing students to join the Lebanese and regional markets requires continuous attention to new approaches to learning and teaching, with new courses designed and new lesson plans prepared. We understand these challenges and work diligently to bring new technologies and informed professionals to our university.

This year, we have also moved to new premises, on the sixth floor of a new building on the Azm Educational Campus, and started the furbishing of an advanced computer and media lab, fitted with up-to-the-minute equipment that will offer our students hands on experience in all facets of studio settings.

We have also been very privileged in the commitment that our first-rate faculty members have shown to our mission. This is why I am sure that at the Faculty of Arts & Sciences you’ll receive the best possible education for your time and investment. Welcome aboard.
