DOHA HER Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser has announced new programmes aimed at offering students more academic choices and allowing them to diversify their specialisation.
She was speaking at the Qatar Foundation (QF) convocation ceremony for the year 2013.
QF students will soon be able to take up majors in one university while reading a minor at another. The first cross-registration will be between Northwestern University in Qatar (NUQ) and Georgetown University- School of Foreign Services in Qatar (SFS-Qatar) for Journalism & Political Sciences.
She also announced three new degrees within Hamad bin Khalifa University namely, Executive Masters in Energy and Resources, a Masters in Library and Information Studies, and an Academic Research and Methods certificate programme.
HH Sheikha Moza urged the 437 graduates, “Remember do not always accept reality as it is. You must accept challenges. You must engage in dialogue.
You should also bridge the gap between the present and the future.
Formidable challenges await you.
This is your role after all”.
At the ceremony, held at Qatar National Convention Centre, HH Sheikha Moza reminded the class of 2013 and the future leaders of Qatar, comprising 229 women and 208 men, to continue giving high regard to knowledge and spread such virtue beyond the walls of their universities.
