The mission of Petra College for Tourism and Archaeology at Al-Hussein Bin Talal University, is to provide a holistic foundation to the study of cultural heritage through the three major subfields that include, archaeology, tourism, and hotel management. This is achieved through a rigorous but balanced curriculum that encompasses the current theoretical perspectives and methodologies of the discipline.
The College is committed to the highest standards of teaching, research, and training for students'. We believe that College research should be integrated into our teaching so that we can engage our students to fully appreciate the richness and diversity of the discipline of cultural heritage and at the same time enrich the students’ educational experience.
We offer a variety of educational opportunities that include academic study as well as practical hands-on learning activities through a variety of educational programmes, field projects, and internships.
