The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) was established with a vision to enrich society in Qatar and across the wider world with transformative educational experiences that bridge disciplinary boundaries, and offer the academic community opportunities to engage in innovative research and collaboration. The college aspires to nurture a diverse body of academically grounded and socially responsible global citizens, whose versatility will enable them to navigate the complexities of today’s world and become tomorrow`s leaders.
CHSS currently offers five graduate degree programs in the fields of translation and interpreting; women, society and development; and digital humanities. The Master of Arts programs in translation studies and audiovisual translation are delivered by the Translation and Interpreting Institute (TII) and internationally validated by the University of Geneva in Switzerland.
CHSS strives to achieve academic excellence and promote cutting-edge research. This mission is accomplished through innovative, interdisciplinary, research intensive postgraduate programs in the humanities and social sciences that prepare qualified graduates for the professional and scholarly worlds. By creating a unique educational and learning experience for students, CHSS will develop their intellectual and creative capacities and equip them with the professional skills to advance in their careers and future lives.
Welcome the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS), which launched its two first MA programs in August 2017. Despite being a young College, CHSS is able to leverage the reputation and the impact of the Translation and Interpreting Institute (TII) in Qatar and beyond, and to build upon the strong ties TII has established with governmental and semi-government entities, industry, and civil society. Opportunities are abundant, and CHSS is committed to creating leaders who can turn these opportunities into realities that will benefit their direct societies and humanity in general.
The college's strength today is attributed to the faculty, staff, students, supporters, stakeholders and partners on their substantial contributions to all our successes. Together, we are all committed to making a positive social impact locally and globally through unique and transformative interdisciplinary educational programs and research.
