SSBS OVERVIEW

From its inception, Al-Hussein Technical University has centered on an integrated educational model that targets the social and economic needs of the country. We have adopted a praxis approach which permits students to experience technical theories, learned in the classroom, through apprenticeship. Technical skills and their theoretical unpinning are only a part of the student’s journey. The School of Social and Basic Sciences ensures that students equally develop their skills and talents in leadership and interpersonal communication, by focusing on the cultural, social, and economic aspects of being a professional in today’s global market. Thus, HTU focuses on the whole student as an active member of society, recognizing that individuals must possess both technical and soft skills for success in their professional and personal lives.

The School of Social and Basic Sciences offers courses in soft skills, economics, accounting, mathematics, history and civilization, human rights, physics, entrepreneurship, and languages, such as English, French, German, Spanish, and Turkish, among others. These courses aim to support students’ acquisition of the tools necessary to be competitive in an evolving, global workplace. SSBS regularly adds new courses in these and other disciplines in order to continually reflect market and societal needs and expectations. Embracing the importance of quality control and continuous quality improvement, SSBS incorporates evidenced-based best practices in its teaching methods, as well as the use of current technology and applications as effective tools for content delivery. This closely aligns with the university’s philosophy of learning by doing.
