Freshman Program

​​The Freshman Program housed at AUB’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) is a year-long program that requires the completion of 30 credits. Students in this program take a variety of courses in humanities, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, and specific requirements ahead of moving to the sophomore year. Based on the liberal arts tradition, the Freshman Program offers a multitude of rich courses, from biology to philosophy, psychology to music, all of which give students an explorative and wholesome experience on the beautiful AUB campus.

Freshman  Academic Advisers

Advisers are the link to the University's academic units. They help prepare course schedules, monitor and advise students on all academic matters. They also help students select a major and act as a career guide to learn more about the roles of academic advisers visit the Academic Adviser Page

​Freshman Mentorship Program

Established in 2017, the Freshman Mentorship Program supports the academic advising process. Our mentors are AUB students who welcome you to the big FAS family! They are here to make your transition to AUB, as well as to Beirut, smooth and enjoyable. They will introduce you to campus life and to different clubs and societies. More importantly, they host fun events throughout the year where you can make new friends and get to know the FAS community, much like our famous Pizza Party.
