Students devote much of the first two years to a Core Curriculum that provides the essentials of a liberal education and a foundation for further intellectual development. During sophomore year, students choose from one of Four Majors focused on global issues. Although the majors are rooted in particular disciplines, each incorporates intellectual perspectives from several fields.
This dual emphasis on international scope and multidisciplinary approaches distinguishes the curriculum of the School of Foreign Service in Qatar from that of other liberal arts programs.
The program provides students with a solid understanding of the historical development of the American people, providing the necessary context for the exploration of cultural and social themes across a variety of disciplines, as well as the advanced study of American political processes and institutions.

The program capitalizes on the unique geographical, cultural and academic situation of SFS-Q to highlight the connection of regional history with current issues, as well as to stress the impact of culture on the self-understanding of the Arab and Islamic world and its relationship with the West.

The program enables students to better understand how politicians, diplomats, and policy makers influence, and are themselves influenced by, the media in its myriad forms and formats. It also introduces students to the ideological and political implications of the representations that the mass media generate. View details
