Doha Institute for Graduate Studies

The Doha Institute for Graduate Studies (DI) is an independent and not-for-profit post-graduate academic institution. DI is located in the heart of the Qatari capital, Doha, which is a cultural, media, and educational hub located in the heart of the Arab region. Doha hosts a variety of international sporting events, including the 2022 World Cup, and boasts a plethora of cultural icons, traditional souqs, modern malls, world-class museums and exhibits, luxury man-made islands, and one of the world’s best airports.

DI offers 17 Masters programs through the School of Social Sciences and Humanities, the School of Public Administration and Development Economics, the School of Psychology and Social Work, the Center for Conflict and Humanitarian Studies and a master's in critical security studies at the Critical Security Studies Graduate Program.

The DI is premised on four interrelated values in accordance with its mission:

Arab Contribution to Knowledge Production 
Integrating cross-disciplinary learning and research 

Commitment to Academic Standards
Informed by the latest developments in social sciences, humanities, public administration, and development economics 

Intellectual Responsibility and Critical Awareness 
A new generation of intellectuals committed to Arab societies 

Space for Intellectual Independence 
Knowledge and scientific methodology as the basis for freedom of thought

DI was founded in 2014, as an autonomous legal entity, by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies. It welcomed its first cohort of students in the academic year 2015-2016. It is planned that student enrollment will eventually reach between 350 and 400.

Designated as a not-for-profit, Independent institution, the DI is operated exclusively for educational, research and public service purposes. In an atmosphere of institutional and intellectual freedom, guided by scientific standards, the DI supports innovative scholarly research concerned with issues that affect the Arab region. Teaching and learning are integrated with research in a student-centered environment that seeks knowledge through searching, dialogue, and discovery.

The DI assumes and promotes the Arabic language as a tool of scientific inquiry, an official language in public discourse, and a primary language for teaching and research. By using a rich, expressive, and precise vocabulary and lexicon, DI faculty and students are expected to utilize Arabic in academia and research. While Arabic is the primary language of instruction, English is regarded as a companion language in learning and scholarship. Both languages will be actively used in the delivery and study of different subjects and some courses may employ both languages to examine various aspects of the same subject.
