In the beginning, an emphasis was given to preparing teachers and employees for the tourism industry of Bethlehem with programs in Education and Hotel Management. However, demand quickly caused the opening of programs in the fields of Arts, Sciences, Business Administration and Nursing. During the 1990's programs in Midwifery, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy were added. Two-year diploma programs were developed to meet special needs in Education, Nursing, and Tourism.
