American University in Cairo - Description

Founded in 1919, The American University in Cairo (AUC) has become an essential contributor to the intellectual, cultural and social life of Egypt. AUC has nearly 35,000 active alumni. Currently, some 6,500 students are enrolled in 36 undergraduate, 44 master's, and two doctoral programs. More than 16,000 students enroll each year in non-credit courses offered through AUC's School of Continuing Education. AUC maintains two campuses: its environmentally-conscious main campus in the suburbs of Cairo and its historical campus in downtown Cairo. AUC emphasizes research and innovation grounded in the liberal arts, and all undergraduate students study a common set of courses in the humanities and the natural and social sciences as part of the university's Core Curriculum. AUC is strongly committed to excellence, diversity, lifelong learning, social responsibility, and integrity in its programs and services. AUC degrees are accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education in the US and by the National Authority for Quality Assurance and Assessment of Education (NAQAAE) in Egypt, and many of its programs have specialized accreditation. The university is ranked among the top 450 universities worldwide, according to the London-based Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).
