The partnership between Bard College (New York) and Al-Quds University (East Jerusalem) represents the first dual-degree program between US and Palestinian institutions of higher education. Al-Quds Bard College for Arts and Sciences offers undergraduate BA programs in the liberal arts and sciences and a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program. All students receive both US and Palestinian accredited degrees.
AQB emphasizes student-centered learning, the development of independent inquiry, and the free exchange of ideas. Classes are small and focus on writing and critical thinking. The principal language of instruction is English across the curriculum.
We seek to educate the whole person and provide broad knowledge of diverse disciplines along with in-depth knowledge in the student's chosen fields.
