Dean’s Welcome

On behalf of all our faculty, staff and students, welcome to the Faculty of Languages and Communication (FoLaC) at American University of Madaba (AUM).
As the Acting Dean of the Faculty, I’m immensely proud of the tradition of providing not only theoretical, but also practical, experience-based education since our founding. Our English Literature & Language as well as Translation majors prepare our students to become leaders, empowered not only with valuable competencies and skills, but also with the moral wisdom and intellectual passion necessary to meet the challenges of a time of critical transition in society and the world at large.

With science and wisdom as pillars of AUM’s vision, mission, philosophy and key working principles, we offer unique opportunities for our students to engage with local, national and international companies and communities. These strengths are evident in our faculty’s graduates, with many going on to graduate schools, while others finding amazing opportunities in entrepreneurial ventures and not-for-profit organizations. Central to the success of our current students and Alumni is our focus on honing their life goals and life skills through student-centered teaching methods that our faculty brings into the classroom.

In sum, the knowledge, commitment, hard work and contributions of FoLaC continue to drive change both at the university and across our society and beyond.

I would like to affectionately invite all of you who are interested in expanding their knowledge and enriching their careers to further explore our faculty, with its two distinguished departments, either online or through a visit to campus.

Yours Sincerely,

Dr. Hanan M. Madanat
