New university specializations introduced for the 2024-2025 academic year

Amman, June 13 (Petra) — The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research announced on Thursday that the Higher Education Council has approved the introduction of several new and distinctive specializations and programs. These will be available at the intermediate diploma, bachelor’s, higher diploma, and master’s levels.

The council has also introduced several professional and applied specializations in both public and private Jordanian universities, effective from the beginning of the upcoming academic year 2024-2025. These programs must receive specific accreditation from the Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission for Higher Education Institutions before teaching begins. The newly approved specializations span various academic degrees.

However, the council did not approve requests from some universities to introduce specializations that are currently over-saturated or stagnant, as well as those that are already significantly offered at other universities.

Regarding requests for new doctoral programs, specialized committees from the Higher Education Council will conduct thorough evaluations. These evaluations will ensure that the programs meet specific quality conditions before approval. Additionally, further studies will assess the demand in the Jordanian labor market for graduates of these doctoral programs and specializations.
