Exemplifying the tradition that a college education liberates the mind, the School of Arts & Sciences at AUD provides a broad based general education in language, science, mathematics, the humanities and social sciences.
We value the pursuit of knowledge and believe that all graduates benefit greatly from studying a broad spectrum of subjects during their time in higher education. By encouraging independent thinking via a traditional academic curriculum and external learning opportunities, we produce graduates who foster a passion for life-long learning and want to create ethical, real-world professional opportunities.
Offering a high-quality university educational experience, The School of Arts & Sciences effectively prepares students for graduate school programs and careers relating to traditional arts and sciences.
All students at AUD are required to integrate the Arts and Sciences core subjects within their degree programs, with modules including Cultural Studies, English/Communications, Humanities/Fine Arts and Social/Behavioral Sciences. Our dedicated departments facilitate academic programs in the areas of International and Middle East Studies, English, Humanities and Social Sciences, Mathematics, and Sciences.
The School of Arts & Sciences also provides concentrated learning opportunities with Bachelor of Arts programs in International Studies and Psychology, alongside a Certificate in Middle Eastern Studies.
