Academic Curriculum

A.U.K. Admission

A.U.K. offers an American-accredited and internationally-recognized Bachelor’s degree in Applied Arts and Science upon successful completion of the undergraduate program. This degree is awarded by the Rochester Institute of Technology, a US- based university with over 180 years of experience offering undergraduate and graduate programs in the United States, and around the world.

The structure of the undergraduate academic program is built on an “English-only” instructional model; each student is held at the same high academic standards as those attending classes in the United States. At A.U.K., students are adults, encouraged to take responsibility for their own success and to develop a sense of themselves as individuals. Students begin their academic career by following a rigorous four-year education program designed to expose them to a wider worldview, sense of curiosity and innovation. During the first two years, students are given a range of courses that also help them to develop a solid base in:

•    Behavioral & Social Science
•    Communications
•    Computer literacy
•    Critical and abstract thinking skills
•    Global issues
•    Liberal Arts & the Humanities
•    Literature
•    Math & Science
•    Problem solving and research skills
•    Spoken and written English

As students enroll to their Junior (3rd) year at A.U.K., they are able to create an individualized course of study that meets their academic and professional goals. At this time, each student selects a combination of 2 areas of professional concentration and a minor. The concentrations and minors available have been designed to allow students to develop the multidisciplinary knowledge, experience, and skills necessary to start a career in the private sector, public sector, or the media and communication sphere. In addition, any A.U.K. graduate who wishes to do so is well-placed to pursue advanced graduate studies in a range of disciplines.
