The University ofJordan


The University of Jordan is both a modern as well as old institution of Higher Education in Jordan. Established in 1962, the University has, since then, applied itself to the advancement of knowledge no less than to its dissemination.
In its capacity as a comprehensive teaching, research and community-service institution, theUniversity ofJordan enables its students to choose from a wide range of programs- more than 3500 different courses are offered by some 18 faculties.
Among its more than 961 faculty members are freelance writers in the national newspapers and magazines as well as consultants for the radio and TV stations, poets, novelists, short-story writers, and literary critics. Many have also offered their services to some neighboring Arab and Muslim countries, and many teach or have taught at a number of prestigious universities all over the world. Most faculty members are active participants in conferences, workshops, and symposia abroad; and most take advantage of the various research and exchange awards. Given the global outlook, the progressive thinking and diverse background, these faculty members shoulder the responsibility of delivering a quality education to the 25,000 students who are pursuing a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate programs.
At the undergraduate level, students have the choice to select from among  59 different programs in the Arts, Business Administration, Science, Shari'a (Islamic Studies), Medicine, Nursing, Agriculture, Educational Sciences, Engineering and Technology, Law, Physical Education, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Humanities and Social Sciences,  Rehabilitation Sciences, Information Technology and, most recently, Arts and Design.
For those interested in graduate education, the University offers 22 doctoral programs, 61 Master's programs, 17 programs in Higher Specialization in Medicine, one program in Higher Specialization in Dentistry, five Professional Diploma Programs, and three interdisciplinary Master's programs across the wide spectrum of academic disciplines.
From an international perspective, the University offers 59 international programs at the undergraduate level, and 61 international programs at the graduate level and in all fields of specializations.

All programs offered by the University combine traditional academic lecturing with the more liberal methodologies of instruction which are based on dialogue, research and creative thinking. Theoretical instruction is further assisted with interactive multimedia teaching techniques and computer-based instructional materials to support, and eventually discard, traditional teaching methodologies. Field work, practical training, and applied research are essential components of most of the programs offered by the University. For sometime, UJ has been introducing and implementing the principles of Total Quality Management (TQM). With respect to Information Technologies, UJ is very well-positioned.
