FAQ: What are the 'liberal arts and sciences'?


A liberal arts and sciences programme is traditionally a course of studies that provides a well-rounded education in the humanities, social sciences and sciences. The emphasis is on acquiring the academic skills, knowledge and intellectual tools that will help students to be successful in any career that they choose. It provides students with a broad academic orientation, an independent critical way of thinking and writing, and in-depth learning as a basis for further specialisation at the graduate level.

AUC offers a liberal arts and sciences programme that is actively oriented to the demands and challenges of the 21st century.
