Despite being young in age, American University of Sharjah (AUS) is acclaimed throughout the region for its academic excellence and multicultural campus life. While Arabic is the official language of the United Arab Emirates, all classes and administrative functions are conducted in English. AUS is accredited in the United States of America by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The bachelor of science degree programs in engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. The Bachelor of Architecture program of the College of Architecture, Art and Design is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) of the United States. This is the first program outside of North America to receive this prestigious accreditation. The School of Business Administration is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). In addition to our bilateral partnerships, our memberships in consortiums such as the International Student Exchange Programs (ISEP), the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE), and Academic Programs International (API) connect our university with hundreds of universities from more than 40 countries worldwide. Embrace the strong intellectual tradition of the Middle East through education at AUS. Take accredited courses in your major, while enhancing your Arabic language skills through formal classroom instruction and daily conversational practice with native speakers. Exchange students can expect to learn about the Emirati and Gulf Arab Culture while being immersed in the full spectrum of the Arab/Islamic world. They can choose from a wide array of courses concerned with Arab-Islamic culture and civilization, modern Arab history, economics in the Middle East and so much more. The UAE is in the center of the world map. It is surrounded by wonderful international airports and airlines with direct flights to almost any major city in the world. Students are able to travel and explore the globe so easily, from the UAE as a base. AUS is located at the intersection of four very different worlds within the UAE: the traditional Arab city of Sharjah, celebrated by UNESCO and ISESCO as the Cultural Capital of the Arab and Islamic World; the cosmopolitan and futuristic city of Dubai, widely known for icons such as the tallest building in the world, an indoor ski slope, and palm islands; the wide open desert where students can experience a desert safari, ride camels, and experience life as a Bedouin; and finally the Indian Ocean resort shoreline where snorkeling and traditional water sports abound. The UAE is popular among tourists and expats from across the world. You will always feel right at home in the UAE especially with its very low levels of property crime, and very low levels of violent crime. Women feel extraordinarily safe and secure here. In addition to that, the AUS Campus is self-contained with strong security and a Police College located just outside its gates.
