The Northwestern University (NU-Q) Qatar campus offers liberal arts and media education with undergraduate degrees awarded in communication, journalism and strategic communication.
Northwestern moved into its permanent facility in education city in January 2017. The four-story building is more than 500,000 square feet and has achieved a LEED Gold Certification.

The inaugural NU-Q Class began studies in August 2008. Additional classes have been added each year, and the university has established strong ties with local organizations, partnering with media groups and collaborating with a number of regional initiatives to generate additional educational and professional opportunities for its students.

NU-Q courses are modeled closely on those offered at Northwestern University campus in the United States, although adjustments have been made because the Qatar campus courses are taught in a 15-week semester system, rather than a 10-week quarter system. Additionally, courses with particular relevance to the region are offered at NU-Q.

Juniors in the Communication Program are eligible to apply for the Evanston exchange. Shorter international academic trips are offered at various times throughout the year. Past destinations have included USA, Switzerland, Turkey, Italy, South Africa, France and India . All students are eligible their sophomore year to apply for a one-week trip to the Northwestern University Evanston campus, which takes place in May of each year.

NU-Q offers an annual summer media program to high school students combining aspects of the Strategic Communication, Journalism and other Communication Programs. NU-Q also offers workshops to high school students periodically throughout the school year.

The university also will soon open The Media Majlis at Northwestern University in Qatar, the first museum in the Arab world dedicated to exploring the content of media, journalism and communication.
