Faculty of Arts and Human Sciences is one of the most important faculties at Al-Azhar University-Gaza (AUG). It was established in 1991as the Faculty of Languages and Translation. The following year, the university opened the Arabic Studies Department; hence the name was changed to the Faculty of Arts. Other academic departments were opened as well, such as Geography Department, History Department and Social Science Department.

The university council has always been interested in developing the faculty by opening new departments that meet the needs of the local community such as Public Relations, Journalism, Theatre, Languages. Several academic departments added specialized courses to build a strong academic capacity, such as Arabic & Journalism, English &French, Sociology and Social Service, Sociology & Psychology, Political Science and Sociology, Geography & Planning, , Political Science & History.  

Due to the flourishing development of the faculty, the university started to accept students in Arabic Language master's program since 1996. The faculty also offers a master's degree in Middle Eastern Studies program.

The faculty aspires to develop its current libraries and laboratories, build a History Center, publish an international magazine, and open new majors and master's degree programs.
