Welcome to the School of Arts & Sciences

A Message from the Dean of the School of Arts& Sciences


The School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) has one goal at mind which is the well being of humanity. Every act humans take has its role towards or away from this goal and every simple job humans undertake makes our society evolve and progress. What we do at the SAS is not merely a job, it is a passion because we believe that the world can be changed one student at a time. This is done by sharing knowledge, exchange and discuss ideas, and by treating everyone with respect and reverence. Upon graduation our students are equipped with the knowledge to be wherever their dreams take them. We just hope that changing the world is one of these dreams.

As a fresh graduate in 2002, I joined LIU as a physics lecturer and I can assure you from firsthand experience that this is a wonderful place to be at. If you seek academic excellence, an opportunity for growth and achievement, and a place where knowledge is celebrated come join us at LIU. Come and celebrate humanity with us, come to where learning never ends.

Sincerely yours,
Tarek Harb, Ph.D.

Dean, School of Arts and Sciences



Historical Review


The School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) is one of five different graduate schools within the Lebanese International University. The current structure of the SAS was established in 2009 and is currently the largest school with more than ten thousands students, over six hundred and fifty full and part-time faculty in seven academic departments. The school offers sixteen bachelor’s degrees with interdisciplinary domains.

In addition to the large arts and sciences core curriculum, the SAS offers three master programs accredited by the Ministry of Education. In 2012, the SAS began offering Master of Science in Mathematics. In 2018, the school initiated a Master of Science in Food Technology and a Master of Science in Computer Science.

Since its establishment, the SAS provides a core foundation of arts and basic sciences knowledge so each graduate student leaves with sufficient knowledge to offer ample opportunities to extend their career or to continue their higher education.

In its role to develop professional practice knowledge, the SAS established local partnership with different private and public companies and medical institutes. These partnerships contribute to the sustainability of education and nurture a high level of knowledge to our students in different fields especially in the medical-oriented domains.

Along with the LIU mission and vision, the spirit of research is highly motivated by the SAS. The ambition and dedication of school faculty toward this path has been recently viewed through an increasing number of scientific research publications in national and international journals.
