The Faculty of Arts & Humanities is to include the following departments:
- Islamic Studies Department.
- Arabic Language and Literature departments.
- Foreign Languages Department.
- Media and Journalism Department.
Currently, the faculty contains only one department, that is, English language department. This department is part of the foreign languages department. The university paid much attention to it because it aimed to produce distinguishably proficient graduates who can combine theoretical knowledge with the practical one. Also, it will not be a replica of other institutions and faculties.
In order to accomplish this, the university made sure to recruit elite qualified foreign teachers for teaching in this faculty. Furthermore, it qualified a number of the department teachers by granting them scholarships for capacity building.
The faculty has also helped to establish a readable, audible and visual library to meet the informational development that the world witnesses today. Furthermore, the faculty works to create a department just for female students thus adapting gender segregation in faculty of girls that agrees with the society’s culture. This is to emphasize women’s role in serving and developing the society.
This faculty has two training centers. One is for teaching Arabic for non-native speakers. The other is for teaching English language. These centers give specialized courses as well as high and intermediate diplomas in teaching English as a second language for academic, commercial and tourism purposes.
