Many programs may be completed in 1 year, though this varies per program. Contact the API office for specific program requirements per program. HIGHLIGHTS Doha is the capital of Qatar, a small peninsular nation about the size of Connecticut, located approximately halfway up the coast on the Arabian (Persian) Gulf. Over 3/4 of Qatar’s population live in Doha or the surrounding communities. The official language of the country is Arabic, though one will find it quite easy to communicate in English as well. Despite being a small nation, Qatar holds the 3rd largest natural gas reserves in the world. Since gaining independence from the U.K. on September 3, 1971, Qatar has diversified its economy in a wide range of fields, becoming one of the fastest-growing economies in the world (it is soon to overtake Switzerland as the richest nation on Earth!). Doha is an increasingly modern and cosmopolitan city, offering excellent entertainment, cultural, and sporting events (it was recently awarded the 2022 World Cup), as well as other exciting activities. Local amenities include a gorgeous waterfront promenade called the Corniche, the Museum of Islamic Art designed by I.M. Pei, the architect who built the Louvre Pyramids, and the Aspire Sports Zone, a multi-use sports facility built for the 2006 Asian Games.
