The School of Arts and Sciences exemplifies the tradition that a college education liberates the mind.

The School values the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake and believes that all college graduates are capable of studying a broad spectrum of subjects and of following a rational process to draw conclusions and inferences. 

The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies (B.A.I.S.) program design promotes more than just understanding of the four disciplines – History, Business, Politics and Culture. It cultivates knowledge in the overlap between the various disciplines at the same time. It builds a capacity for thinking in interdisciplinary ways, and promotes connections between subjects that are usually presented at other universities as separate domains.

The Middle East is such a wonderful yet complex region, that even those who live in the area find it difficult to fully understand its “mechanisms”. Regional and foreign students have shown an increasing interest in developing an understanding of this region and in seeking employment here, hence their need to gain a deeper knowledge of and sensitivity towards its historical, cultural, social and political environment. For that purpose, The American University in Dubai has created its Certificate in Middle Eastern Studies.

In addition to courses in their chosen program/major, undergraduate students in all disciplines must follow a curriculum in Arts and Sciences. This is in fulfillment of the general education portion of their degree requirements.
