Social Sciences (1)



The official amalgamation of all colleges and faculties was fully realized in 1995. A "basic law" of the university was endorsed, followed by the honing of integrated bylaws, which were put into effect, thus clearing the way for the birth of Al-Quds University as a single institution. New centers and colleges were opened or amalgamated, and a full range of academic programs were implemented.


The mission of Al Quds University is to equip students with the necessary tools to overcome overwhelming challenges and to shape a successful future. This is made possible through the promotion of academic research and professional excellence.


Al-Quds University also aims at the development of a multi-cultural mindset to go with the current reality of the political and socio-economical situation in Jerusalem, since Jerusalem's unique constitution as a mosaic cross-road of different nations, cultures and religions, giving special emphasis on introducing students especially, but the University community as a whole, to the multi-cultured heritage of human civilization. This is achieved in a number of ways, whether through special courses in human civilizations or human rights, international cooperation, joint educational projects involving faculty and students, lectures and events, foreign scholarships and exchanges.

Being and not being

Studying at Alquds University was such as going through an unstable storm that you wish for its end the sooner it's possible, this is what it is like studying at the borders with the occupation. It was like being and not being; having a student life and not having; it was a must-go trip, instead of a great study experience.
