​​Mission Statement

The General Education (GE) Program at AUB seeks to provide students with essential skills in research and communication in a diverse number of areas. Students learn to think critically and analyze intellectual and social issues in their historical and contemporary frameworks from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The program aims to enrich their lives by fostering problem solving skills and promoting life-long learning that embraces the student's principles and choice of active learning.

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.​​
