The Faculty of Arts and Humanities proudly supports the AUT mission with special emphasis on the ideals of providing an innovative and technology-rich learning environment that enables students to develop intellectually, professionally and with a deep appreciation for the role they will play in the advancement of a global society and the valorization of Lebanese cultural and creative achievements. Students share their ideas and talents through creative expression and they hone their craft through intensive hands-on projects and work experience in their fields of study. Creativity is encouraged not only in course-related projects but also in campus and local municipal events organized by students.
Our programs are forward-looking, international-minded, and designed to provide interdisciplinary learning experiences where students will be trained to become not just professionals, but world citizens and successful leaders in their respective fields locally, regionally and internationally.

The majority of FAH teaching staff have industry experience and students benefit from both their experience and from their respective professional networks.
