Accreditation of Three Undergraduate Programs
An-Najah University obtained accreditation by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission (AQAC) for three bachelor's programs. The programs are Business Journalism (Business major, Public Relations minor and Business major, Digital Communication and Media minor) and Cardiac Perfusion Technology (CPT), the first of its kind in the region.
Business journalism aims to provide qualified graduates having both journalism and business knowledge. The discipline tracks, records, analyzes and interprets the business, economic and financial activities and changes that take place in societies.
Potential graduates will be able to read and analyze business data and address the growing need for understanding how markets and business work and the ability to explain these increasingly complex areas in a way that the average media consumer can understand. The two business programs include 126 credit hours.
The primary aim of Cardiac Perfusion Technology is to academically and clinically prepare the cardiovascular perfusion student for professional practice. The program will focus on developing a strong knowledge base in cardiothoracic anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, as well as pharmacology, fetal and neonatal cardiac development and perfusion science.
Graduates are expected to be members of the open-heart surgical team whose primary role is to conduct cardiopulmonary bypass using a heart-lung machine and other ancillary equipment. In addition, they will be experts of other life support equipment such as ventricular assist devices and intra-aortic balloon pumps. The program will include 136 credit hours.
Registration will be open for the three programs at the beginning of the first semester of the academic year 2020-2021.
