What Makes Al-Quds University Special ??

Al-Quds University, the Arab University in East Jerusalem, whose mission is the encouragement of an open and pluralistic cultural climate for its students, employees  and community continues  to explore chances to increase its role in creating understanding, bridging gaps and reducing tensions and conflict through offering new courses and programs. Nowadays, there is so much need to work on the prevention of hatred, animosity and stereotypes that serve as hot beds for generating and prolonging conflict, dehumanization and demonization of others.


There is a need to engage students from all over the world to take an active and leading role in uprooting all sources, motivations and forms of hate speech by offering them a platform to discuss and address this issue at a scientific and responsible level. It is much needed as well to develop awareness but joint programs of how to be vigilant when hate speech occurs and how to mobilize efforts to challenge that according to certain criteria. Most countries even they differ in defining hate speech but all agree on its illegality.       


In February 2009, Barc College  announced the first dual degree program between a Palestinian university and an American institution of higher education. The College entered into a collaboration with Al-Quds University involving an honors college, a master’s program in teaching and a model high school . The University also provides higher education and community services within the Jerusalem area and to the neighboring towns, villages and refugee camps in the West Bank. It has ten academic faculties on four campuses: Arts, Science and Technology, Medicine, Dentistry, Public Health, Law, Qur'an and Islamic Studies, Health Professions, Engineering, and Jurisprudence.
