About the Department

Design education at the Yarmouk University goes back to the year 1980 when it was a new field in Jordan, where the major of the design was subsidiary of the Department of Fine Arts. Since its inception as the first Department of Fine Arts in Jordan, design disciplines attracted students from all over the Kingdom, with faculty members from Jordan and the Arab and foreign countries.

The Department of Design grants a bachelor's degree in each of the four fields of design. Currently, the Department of Design includes (13) faculty members of various academic ranks joined by around (380) students. The department aims to become recognized as a center of design in the region in teaching and research, and an effort continuously rises to the level of creativity and consulting compared to centers and institutes in the area of design and human creativity worldwide.
