The Doha Institute for Graduate Studies (DI) announced the accreditation of three programmes.
They are Sociology and Anthropology, Media and Cultural Studies, and Public Policy from the schools of Social Sciences and Humanities (SOSH) and Public Administration and Development Economics (SPADE).
The online event was attended by DI acting president Dr Abdelwahab El Affendi, administration and finance vice-president Dr Hend al-Muftah, faculty and staff, as well as students from both schools.
Dr El Affendi explained that the accreditation policy for educational institutions is based on several principles, the most important of which is verifying the quality of programmes offered by the institute with the highest international standards.
Dr al-Muftah asserted that the Institute will continue its endeavour to obtain new accreditations, the most important of which is institutional accreditation from the Quality Assurance Agency in the UK.
According to the director of Institutional Effectiveness and Quality Assurance, Dr Jad Kawtharani, “the Doha Institute has succeeded in obtaining international accreditations for three of its programmes from two different bodies: the German, which follows the quality assurance standards set by the European higher education system, and the American , which follows North American standards."
"These programmes managed to get accreditation in a very short period compared with other universities. That shows the strength of the DI programmes in terms of scientific and pedagogical point of view, and its ability to respond to various quality assurance standards," Dr Kawtharani added.
