Birzeit University

Birzeit University is a national, non-profit, pluralistic, independent university, dedicated to producing leaders and knowledge in service of humanity and Palestinians everywhere.
Since its inception as a small school for girls in 1924, Birzeit University defeated all odds, including severe restrictions on academic development and freedom imposed by the Israeli military occupation, and embodied a success story that inspires all Palestinians.
The university celebrated its first graduating class in 1976, the same year when it joined the Association of Arab Universities, and became a member of the International Association of Universities one year later in 1977.
By the end of the 1970s and well through the 1980s, Birzeit University went through an academic and urban resurgence, where it launched more academic programs and continued its community outreach tradition by building numerous institutes and centers. Birzeit University entered the third millennium relying confidently on a legacy of academic distinction and its well-designed university campus while winning several local and international awards.
Committed to freedom of thought and expression, democratic practices and social diversity, the university offers distinguished and globally engaged teaching, research and community-based programs designed to cultivate leadership skills, national and humanitarian values, critical thinking, lifelong learning and a spirit of initiative and responsibility towards society and the environment in the context of an institutional culture of sound governance, openness, pluralism, and autonomy.
Through 11 institutes and centers, Birzeit University engages in knowledge production both nationally and globally. It offers 127 academic programs, including 42 master’s and 3 PhD programs, serving 14,743 students in 9 different faculties.
