Living in an era of globalization, people can either watch events unfold from a distance or learn to understand how modern growth and its foundations are related. This world is driven by international banking and finance, telecommunications and information access, and the interactions of geographical regions and peoples. In this world, people encounter historical traditions, political systems which were born under very different conditions, and a diversity of cultures. The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies (B.A.I.S.) degree is designed to provide the educational context in which to understand this “big picture.”
The American University in Dubai offers the B.A.I.S. degree for the students with a passion to make a positive impact and induce change. AUD seeks to capitalize on the international nature of its host city of Dubai as well as the increasing international nature of existence for people around the world.

The 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.
