Chair's Welcome



The Department of Basic Sciences and its chair welcome you to Community College, the University of Sharjah’s most active college in the emirate in terms of geographical distribution. Community College was established in 2005 and has since then lived up to its mission which is to graduate highly-qualified human resources with well-trained capabilities through quality teaching, learning, research and knowledge dissemination.


As its name suggests, the Department of Basic Sciences is a service department. It offers different courses to students of other departments. Its primary mission, therefore, consists in furnishing students with knowledge and cultural support, regardless of their specializations. Although it does not offer any diploma per se, the Department of Basic Sciences plays a cardinal role in providing Community College students with the necessary knowledge in the fields of Arabic Language, Islamic Culture, English for Specific Purposes, mathematics, and statistics.


The Department also has a vibrant research culture which backs up and consolidates  its diversified courses.  Details of our faculty, their contacts, concerns and research interests are equally included on this website. I  hope that you will find the data of interest and assistance.
