Welcome to the School of Basic Sciences and Humanities (SBSH). The School started its functions in February 2015 in response to both, the continuous expansion of GJU in various engineering disciplines and other fields, and the growing numbers of admitted students.
SBSH aims to ensure that each and every student is equipped to tackle their next big challenge in the specialization where they feel most passionate and confident. SBSH helps students develop their scientific, social, and language skills. It offers core courses in basic sciences such as Mathematics and Physics, as well as university requirements in Humanities, such as English and Arabic Language courses. Additionally, SBSH offers many elective courses in a wide range of topics that work to build on the students’ personal and interpersonal skills.
• Placement tests at SBSH are for English, Arabic, and Math. Upon acceptance at GJU, students are required to sit for these compulsory placement tests offered through SBSH. They were developed to ensure that students are placed in the levels appropriate to their skills in order to ensure that students are given a solid base to build the skills of their major upon.
• Elective courses at SBSH aim at capacity building and skills development are offered. These courses include Social Entrepreneurship and Enterprises, Intercultural Communication, Soft Skills, Business Entrepreneurship, Sports and Health, and many more.
• Compulsory Courses at SBSH which aim to build and enhance social responsibility include Military science and National Education.
Despite not offering a degree at SBSH, we, as a School, are part of GJU students’ education and have an impact on their academic journey. Hence, we will always be their first home, and our doors are always open to them in any part of their studies. We listen to their feedback and input while always working to better our assistances at SBSH in order to make the best contribution we could provide to students, GJU, and our beloved Jordan as a whole.
