Dean’s Message

The College of Humanities at Prince Sultan University is delighted to welcome you through its doors whether you are a new or returning student, faculty or staff member, parent of a prospective student, or visitor. The College of Humanities is home to two departments. The Department of Linguistics offers a BA in Applied Linguistics, while the English and Translation Department offers a BA in Translation. The Applied Linguistics program gives students the option to select a concentration in one of its two tracks: Teaching English as a Foreign Language, or English Language for Professionals. Moreover, the College of Humanities houses an indispensable unit, namely the English Courses Unit that offers English language courses to all PSU students. The college’s faculty members’ extensive academic expertise and diverse research backgrounds not only enrich students’ learning experience but also encourage intellectual curiosity and language exploration. The programs are designed in a way to ensure that students are given the opportunity to view language through a number of lenses (i.e. from a social, psychological, and pedagogical perspective), learn about the many different settings language can be utilized, how it can be used as a vital tool to communicate, bridge gaps between speakers of different tongues, and transfer knowledge and culture. The College of Humanities aims to provide its students with a rich intellectual, social, and cultural education. Please take the time to explore our website and learn more about what we offer.
