Welcome from the dean
In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious
First of All, I would like to welcome our freshman students and wish them all the best in their studies in arts and design. I also wish our regular students all success.
Arts and design have been among the cultural requirements of nations throughout history. Today, with the development of the consumer market and the automated reproduction of artworks, art has completely new functions from its predecessor. It now includes a wide audience with multiple tastes, visions, values, and understanding of the function of art.
In spite of all the impacts of the late 20th century modernism, and the postmodernism in the first quarter of the 21st century, the search for spiritual and material harmony has become an issue that will remain intrinsic to the artwork, its vitality, and the depth of its cause that expresses the various contemporary issues, history of current moments, creation of the general artistic context, cultivation of aesthetic taste and sense of the existence of sound criticism based on science and ethics.
This can only be achieved through contemporary art programs that are in line with the nature of the techno-information age and virtual reality systems. Based on the significance of knowledge and its consideration as a subject and method in the era of globalization, it’s imperative that our curricula and programs conform to the civilizational requirements of the age.
Accordingly, the departments/programs of PUA’s Faculty of Arts and Design were established. The Faculty various department/programs such as the Décor Department that includes Interior Design Program and Expressive Arts Program (Design for Theater, Cinema and Television). As well as the Graphics Department, which includes the Graphic Design Program, and the Illustration Program. In addition to the Media Arts Department, which includes the Digital Media Program, and the Animation and Video Film Program. It also has the Painting Department, which contains the Drawing and Painting Program, and the Mural Design Program. Lastly, the Fashion Design Department, which contains the Fashion Design Program.
PUA’s Faculty of Arts and Design tirelessly seeks to provide the best education and learning systems for its students to keep pace with the development in contemporary education systems and achieve the best educational outcomes that are compatible with the requirements of time and its implications on the one hand, and the requirements of the local and international labor market on the other hand.
