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.
