Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Carl gained his B.Arch. from American University of Beirut in 2011 and worked for local and international firms while composing music during the founding years of Mashrou Leila. Gerges, the drummer of the band, has toured the United States, Europe and the Middle East with the band.

In early 2020 he launched Carl Gerges Architects after a decade of architectural ventures and overwhelming support from international professionals that included featuring his own home on the cover of AD Middle East, as well as many other positive media reviews. With a desire to remain in close connection with the new generation of architects and AUB, he served successively as a jury member in the Architecture school. He’s been an active member of the Arab Center of Architecture since 2019. His architectural work gained worldwide recognition and has been extensively published by the professional press in more than 12 countries.

A believer in creative vision regardless of the medium, Carl retains his passionate momentum for making magical contributions, both via musical performances and when leading his architecture studio.
