We are proud to announce that Dar al-Kalima has received today the official accreditation as a University by the Palestinian National Authority for Accreditation and Quality Assurance. This accreditation comes as a culmination of a 15-year long hard work in Higher Education.
In 2006, the Dar al-Kalima Community College was accredited to grant two years associate degrees in visual and performing arts. In 2013, Dar al-Kalima was elevated to become the Dar al-Kalima University College of Arts and Culture, with the academic authority to grant BA degrees.
Today, Dar al-Kalima was re-accredited to become the Dar al-Kalima University, a full-fledged university that has five colleges and is authorized to grant all academic degrees available, from associate diplomas to a PhDs.
The current five Colleges are: College of Design, College of Visual and Performing Arts, College of Tourism and Cultural Management, College of Graduate Studies, and the Community College. DAK’s vision will continue to be “that we might have life and have it abundantly.”
“DAK is a Palestinian university with a focus on the arts and culture, committed to educating the next generations of creative leaders through innovative and high quality academic programs and lifelong learning opportunities, underpinned by a culture of entrepreneurship, research, and social and civic engagement”. This milestone would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of colleagues at DAK University as well as the support of its board members and friends in Palestine, the US, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and other countries.
