Liberal Education
AUD embraces liberal education as the context within which it provides students with a 360-degree whole-person education.
A liberal education teaches students how to think and learn rather than what to think and learn, and it produces graduates who are better able to adapt and respond to the demands of a fast-changing economic and social environment. In addition to developing students into ethical and socially responsible citizens of the world, the liberal education also results in tangible benefits in the form of higher incomes and other material rewards.

3,000 Students
107 Nationalities
