The Faculty of Humanities offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in education, translation/interpretation, literature and language, psychology, advertising/marketing, radio/tv, and journalism/electronic media. In addition, the Faculty offers a B.A. in physical education. These programs are designed to prepare civically-minded and industrious graduates endowed with a liberal arts education. Our mission is to equip our students with problem-solving abilities, critical thinking skills, and information communication competencies to enable them to live together in a diversified global society and contribute to the sustainable development of their communities.
Throughout the years, the Faculty has graduated students who currently occupy leading and prestigious positions in the local and regional market. A sizeable number of these graduates join again the Faculty of Humanities to pursue their graduate studies.
In order to best serve our students and align our programs with ministerial regulations and international academic standards, the Faculty conforms to the standards of international accreditation to assure the quality of its programs through systematic program review and periodic data-driven internal and external assessment.
In terms of structure and facilities, the Faculty comprises four departments, a state-of-the-art laboratory for interpretation, a writing center, a modern studio of audio-visual arts, an up-to-date newsroom equipped with modern technology, and a psychology lab. In addition, the Faculty houses The Benedict XVI Endowed Chair of Religious, Cultural and Philosophical Studies that aims to translate our University’s identity, mission, and vision by organizing international conferences and seminars, local symposia, lecture series, workshops, and media roundtables involving students, faculty members, and international scholars.
