Teaching Emphases and Future Prospects
To succeed in a multicultural and rapidly changing world, our students require strong language and communication skills, excellent critical and problem solving abilities, and a firm ethical foundation. Embedded in the General Education Program, these same skills and abilities are strengthened by courses in each of our academic programs.
Capitalizing on the university’s links across the United Arab Emirates, our programs also require students to complete an internship. This process enables potential employers to appreciate the quality of training received by AURAK students; and, more importantly, it enables our students to develop the skills and contacts they need to take the next step within their chosen professions.……
With experienced teachers and renowned scholars, a wide range of academic possibilities, and a proven track record for steering graduates towards professional success, AURAK’s School of Arts and Sciences offers students the opportunity of a fulfilling university career and truly bright prospects for their futures as graduates.
