Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q) held its annual convocation ceremony to begin the new school year. The keynote speaker was Ellis Cose, a renowned author, journalist, commentator, and educator.
The International Journal of Communication has published a Special Section to its most recent edition on "Global Communication Power: Shift or Stasis?," which is drawn from an NU-Q conference, Fresh Global Media Players, held in February 2015.
In its seventh year, the Summer Media Program is designed to educate students on the basics of journalism, including how to conduct interviews, capture high-quality images, craft educational infographics, write and edit feature articles, and how to speak at news conferences.
Two decades ago, Qatar decided to jump start its provision of higher education by inviting world-class universities to open branches there. The result is Education City, a large campus on the outskirts of the capital, Doha.
