The founding of the department of Arabic language and literature is associated with the founding of the University of Jordan, thus it is not surprising that the first chairman of the department, Professor Nassir al-Din al-Asad, was also the first president of the University of Jordan. Since its beginnings, the department of Arabic has represented the essence of a long-standing university tradition, where the concept of the university’s ‘will’ is manifested in the fact that all decision-making processes are handled by several councils and boards within the university; beginning with departmental boards, faculty boards, and ending with several university boards and councils. Needless to mention, all these councils and boards comprise faculty members, which makes this tradition, in addition to other factors, responsible for endowing the department and the university the distinguished rank they together enjoy.

For graduate students at all levels, our aim in philosophy department, is to provide an academic atmosphere which helps them to meet the various challenges involved in philosophical studies. There are frequent opportunities for contact with staff and for philosophical conversation, in an atmosphere which is both friendly and serious. There are so many students now who choose philosophy. No undergraduate , surely, would choose philosophy. No undergraduate, surely, would choose to study the subject for anything mor than the love of the discipline. Perhaps this was the case, but the tide is turning . The number of students choosing to study philosophy is on the up, rising between 2006-2007 and 2009-2010 . And this is, perhaps, because employers have discovered that a mind sharpened by the study of philosophy is ideal for today's workplace. Employers seeking the best graduates now look at a wider range of degrees because they recognize that courses such as philosophy teach the kind of skills that are essential for senior professional roles, skills that may not be developed at business school. Thus, being able to think criticaly, having good analytical skills, being an effective communicator these are the sorts of skills that most good managers would be expected to have. I think employers are beginning to ask, where are we going to find these skills?
