On behalf of the
Faculty of Science and Arts, I would like to welcome you to the faculty
website. Home to seven departments in
basic sciences and humanities and a hub for general courses, it is the first
indispensable crossroad for every student at the university. Stemming from our
belief in the crucial role that the faculty undertakes in setting the
foundation for our students, we strive to meet the demands of our students by
providing them with the necessary information concerning the faculty programs,
departments, courses, faculty members, venues and news.
With 120 faculty
members, a team of competent lecturers, lab supervisors, technicians, and
administrative staff, we serve the 2020 bachelor students and 340 graduate
students majoring in the various programs offered by faculty departments along
with the 36675 students registered in the general courses offered by the faculty this semester.
In his 7th
discussion paper, His Majesty King Abdullah II called for investing in the
potentials of the young generation, promoting their creativity and boosting
their skills. He highlighted the urgency for transforming and reforming education
to keep pace with the elite international academic institutions. In keeping
with the directives of his majesty and the university’s vision, the faculty has
persistently worked towards providing the infrastructure and resources for
students’ development and upgraded the curricula to keep track of the new scientific
innovations. While JUST has been a pioneer in Jordan in the application of e-learning,
the faculty has recently applied integrative approaches to learning such as
blended learning and project-based learning to open the door for students to participate
in creating knowledge in different learning settings.
The faculty is
working towards obtaining international accreditation. This translates into
perfecting the performance of our staff, services and courses offered and
involving students as learning partners rather than being mere recipients of knowledge.
New labs have been created, technical assistance programs (TAPs) launched and
exchange programs activated. Advisory boards from key local institutions and entrepreneurs
have been established as partners to link our ILOs with the requirements of the
job market. We seek to empower our students to meet the challenges that they
may encounter in their future as alumni. And indeed we take pride in our alumni.
We seek to shape
your repertoire of knowledge, our students, so that you can shape the world
around you. Our joint efforts are put at your service.
Should you need information
about the faculty, please consult our website as we will put updated information
at your disposal.
