The School of Social Sciences and Humanities (SOSH) aims to instill in students a cross-disciplinary approach to the study of its subjects, fostering the diverse and all-encompassing perspectives necessary to understand the world in which we live. Through its programs, SOSH seeks to embolden students to view the issues in their societies critically and holistically, both in diagnosing problems and finding solutions. SOSH encourages students to challenge prevailing assumptions through exposing them to the debates that have shaped the social sciences and humanities in the Arab region and the world at large and, further, to realize how these debates are applicable to their societies. Graduates of SOSH will be well-equipped to continue with academic study at PhD level, or to put their training in intellectual independence, critical thinking, and data analysis to service in the public and private sectors. ​
