School of Arts & Sciences

Dean’s Message


Offering three academic programs, as well as the university-wide General Education Program, the School challenges students to explore the range of the Humanities and Social and Natural Sciences, while building their skills and confidence in different languages and scientific and educational methodologies. Majors in other disciplines and colleges inevitably discover that, no matter what college they belong to, a solid foundation in Arts & Sciences is key to success in their own fields and endeavors. Arts & Sciences is the cornerstone of higher education – it is the most important element necessary for the genuine growth and development of humanity. As the largest academic unit in the university, the School of Arts and Sciences provides the heart of AURAK’s academic experience.

Our Faculty

Faculty in the School of Arts and Sciences promote a passion for intellectual discovery, a lifelong love of learning, and a respect for self and others. Our faculty are internationally recognized scholars whose publications push the boundaries within their fields and define what it means to be a scholar. Here, the students of Arts & Sciences know that they are receiving cutting-edge instruction from an extraordinarily diverse range of faculty members. The advantage of Arts & Sciences at AURAK is that we provide students with the opportunity to engage with faculty in small, personal communities, directly from the source itself, with immediate access to faculty on an individual level. At other institutions faculty of this caliber are much less accessible to the student body. The learning environment provided by AURAK is rare in the academic world today, and produces graduates who are ahead of their competition in both reputation and their ability to succeed.
