To participate in fine tuning the talents and capabilities of current and future generations of scholars and researchers who will be able to tackle and analyze the complicated phenomena resulting from the prevailing political, socio-economic and legal conditions within Jerusalem during current times and to publish relevant studies and research about Jerusalem.
The program offered by the Center for Jerusalem Studies at al-Quds University is a program that leads to an M.A in Jerusalem studies. It is a multi-disciplinary program including the fields of history, law, urban studies, archaeology and political science. The integration of various fields was implemented due to the fact that independent disciplines have become incapable of providing the analytical tools necessary for comprehending the complicated social phenomena which comprise socio-economic, political and cultural perspectives in Jerusalem. Additionally, such an approach can help in training students to set up innovative tactics and strategies to deal with the complexity of living in a city under conflict.
