Mission and Goals

​​Mission Statement

The mission of the General Education (GE) program is to help us understand ourselves, the world and our role in it. The program will allow students learn to think critically and analyze intellectual and social issues in their historical and contemporary frameworks from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. It does so while also enhancing problem-solving skills and abilities for life-long learning. Students will recognize and reflect on their values, their civic responsibilities, and their general roles in society.​

Goals and Requirements

AUB graduates should demonstrate aptitude in communication and interpretation of material in both English and Arabic. This method is key for students to cultivate and develop their skills in accessing and critically selecting information using organized and methodological methods. Students are encouraged to think through, analyze, and rationalize problems and issues with the objective of nurturing these skills for use after graduation.​​
