Texas A&M kicked off its graduate program with two master’s degrees in chemical engineering but will soon begin adding others

 

Qatar Foundation has recently announced the launch of four new master’s programs in Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies (QFIS), Texas A&M University (TAMUQ) and HEC Paris.

 

The introduction of these new degrees is part of an initiative to advocate for higher education and to encourage students and employees to achieve higher degrees.

 

The introduction of the new masters degrees are part of Education City’s evolution, say university officials. When the six universities in Education City were first set up, all offered only undergraduate degrees.

 

QFIS, which was founded in 2007 to offer only master’s programs, will offer two new masters degrees in 2011; one in Urban Design and Architecture in Muslim Societies and another in Contemporary Muslim Society. QFIS is trying to broaden the options of Islamic studies for students, and that’s why we’re adding engineering programs to our curriculum,
