Northwestern University in Qatar is located in the rapidly developing community in Doha called Education City, alongside the campuses of six other leading American universities. Northwestern’s inaugural Class of 2012 in Qatar consists of students pursuing undergraduate degrees in journalism and communications.

Richard Roth, senior associate dean for the journalism program, and Rodda Leage, a lecturer in the communication studies program, share their experiences and reflect on the process of bringing the Northwestern education to the Middle East.
