President Arafatís decision in 1991 to establish Al-Azhar
University-Gaza has materialized the overwhelming dream of
the Palestinian academic cadres in creating a Palestinian
national university, that can fulfill the ambitions and
achieve the dreams of the Palestinian upcoming generations,
and help them pursue their higher studies under the
supervision of highly qualified Palestinian cadres. Having
been given limited access to Arab and international
Thousands of Palestinian students have joined Al-Azhar
University-Gaza pursuing studies in different academic
fields, and acquiring Palestinian values to help them take
part in the construction of their own state.
In nineteen years of its life, the University has twelve
faculties. Besides, the university comprises educational
centers, which can meet the needs of the Palestinian
community, and help its youth majoring in diverse and
fruitful fields of post-graduate knowledge.
Moreover, the University has established postgraduate study
programs towards a Master Degree in Pharmacy, Arts,
Mediterranean Studies, Law, Education, Agriculture, Water
Sciences and Environment, Statistics, Accounting, Business
Administration, Economic, Political Sciences, Chemistry,
Biology and Mathematics.
It will be historically acknowledged that Al-Azhar
University-Gaza has positively participated in educating
successive Palestinian generations whose main pillars are:
planning, hard work, and objectivity, and in helping
hundreds of graduates to represent and develop the
Palestinian local community.
May God bless our efforts
