VCUarts Qatar Collaborates to Create Joint Program

VCUarts Qatar is collaborating with Texas A&M University at Qatar and Weill Cornell Medicine – Qatar to design a new course that is set to launch in January and will be open to any Education City student in their junior year.

Omran Hamad Al-Kuwari, executive director of the Qatar Foundation, the principal funder of the Education City site that houses the campuses, said that the course has a working title of “happy society” and will “investigate important themes of happiness and wellness from the design, medical and technological lens”. It will be taught by academics at the three institutions.

In an interview with Times Higher Education, Mr Al-Kuwari cited the new joint programme, which will contribute credits to students’ degrees, as just one example of the way in which Education City is improving the integration between the hub’s branch campuses.
