Entering its eleventh year of operation, Al-Quds Bard College for Arts and Sciences (AQB) is an innovative program offering a liberal arts undergraduate education and Master of Arts in Teaching program in Palestine, with an enrollment of 350 students in 2016-2017. AQB is a rigorous program, culminating in a two-semester independent senior project, which, in the social sciences, is generally a demanding research paper of 45 pages or more. Graduates of AQB receive dual degrees: a BA or a MAT from Al-Quds University and from Bard College (New York).
AQB invites applications for part-time faculty across all programs and divisions of the College including, Literature & Society, Media Studies, Political Science, Human Rights & International Law, Economics & Finance, Urban Studies & Spatial Practices, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science and the Core Division.

Candidates should be truly interdisciplinary—someone who will creatively and intellectually challenge the standard tropes of academic research.
