Our Goals

Dean's Message

Dr. Imad Assali


Welcome to the College of Arts & Science (AS) at Ahlia University. Arts & Science demonstrates excellence in Mass Communications & Public Relations (MCPR) and Interior Design (INTD). It exemplifies Ahlia University’s commitment to academic excellence as well as contributes to the University’s status as a great global community research university in Bahrain with a view to solving real world problems through quality in research while providing relevant and substantial skills to its students.

In AS, we provide our students with strategies that help them develop their critical thinking skills, the ability to communicate efficiently as well as advancing the cutting edge of knowledge through investigation and innovative activity. We develop a wide-ranging intellectual foundation that prepares students for a lifetime of education, growing in a rapidly altering world, as well as becoming leaders in a diverse and global society. We do our best to prepare our students for a hard and active search for truth. We generate and foster relationships with our students that guide our planning. We promote quality, identify excellence and ensure integrity directed towards the service of the common good.

The AS strategy uses a hypothesis-driven tactic to establish brands that differentiate the College from its peers. We are acquainted with macro styles in order to control our strengths and identify techniques to improve. Recently, we have started to redesign the classroom through extraordinary-structure active-learning systems for which our faculty have received national recognition. In the College, we provide opportunities for students to acquire entrepreneurial skills and to achieve a global education. Our students acquire many strengths which allow them to become game-changers in these evolving areas of significance.

Finally, our students are our motivation for existence. It is our concern to provide them with a sound, open-minded arts education, so they become the most effective idea creators and knowledge correspondents of the upcoming generation. We prepare our students to acquire the real knowledge that allows them to be leaders in an ever-changing global context.
