We offer undergraduates a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service (BSFS), a liberal arts degree that stresses multidisciplinary studies in a global context.


Core Curriculum

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.
