This Department is a basic constituent of Philadelphia University, Jordan. Hence it works in line with this University's policies and mission. It provides a B.A. program and an M.A. program. For that purpose, it employs well-qualified and experienced staff. It also makes sure that the staff member keeps in touch with the latest research in his/her field, both in book-form and on the internet. All members of staff participate in the Faculty of Art's Academic Week, which has been held annually for about fifteen years.

Some members of staff also submit papers to the Philadelphia International Conference, which has been a yearly event that attracts researchers for the last sixteen years. The Department has also been active with the local community, making sure that it offers assistance in the English language to several schools and other institutions in neighboring towns.
