The Department of Humanities offers a wide variety of courses in the fields of philosophy, history, political science and art. Courses aim at enriching students’ knowledge of the most important ideas and theories in these fields, the basic principles of the theory of knowledge and methods of scientific research. The Humanities Department strives to provide students with solid skills ranging from academic reading and writing to analysis and critical thinking in order to understand thoroughly different aspects of these fields.


Recognizing that the Palestinian, Arab and international contexts are all undergoing tremendous changes – which at times are often contradictory – the Humanities Department seeks to develop its students interest in their society and other societies, as well as to cultivate and instill a desire for proactive participation in society while respecting the values of freedom equality and social justice.
