About Effat University
It is with great pleasure that I welcome all students, faculty, administrators, and staff back to another exciting academic year here at Effat University.
We continue to serve our community and nation in full support of The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah’s quest to transform Saudi Arabia into a knowledge-based economy through our long-standing commitment to academic excellence in an ever-expanding range of majors. This year we are proud to announce the start of another ground-breaking program - Visual and Digital Production, in partnership with the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California.
With our commitment to excellence, we strive to educate tomorrow’s leaders at an international standard by providing an inter-disciplinary environment, managing resources effectively to provide life-long learning, providing community service learning experiences, encouraging national and international collaboration, and inspiring new models of learning to maximize the educational experience. We enable our students to mature to well-rounded, competent, and articulate citizens and leaders.
The 2014-2015 academic year will undoubtedly bring new challenges and opportunities. Let us work together to embrace the challenges and seize the opportunities to create a better future for all. I invite you to take a few minutes and browse through the remarkable array of organized activities and events regularly advertised on our Web site. I hope you find the information useful and that it will motivate you to learn more by visiting us in person. Please come to our beautiful 82000 sq. meters campus to experience Effat culture and discover the excitement and energy of its experience for yourself.
