The Undergraduate Program

ACADEMICS / The Undergraduate Program
  • The Asian University for Women opened its doors in 2008 and today has nearly 500 students from 16 countries and many cultural and religious backgrounds in the undergraduate program. AUW graduated its first batch of undergraduates in May 2013.

    The Curriculum

    Modeled after American liberal arts institutions, AUW’s undergraduate curriculum consists of four years of study. The curriculum seeks to develop creativity of thought and vision, critical thinking and reasoning skills, and exceptional writing and speaking skills. The goal is to provide each student with the breadth of knowledge and skills to pursue challenging and rewarding careers and to lead interesting lives. The integration of both abstract and applied studies encourages students to link theoretical understanding with contemporary issues and challenges facing Asia and the world.The undergraduate curriculum consists of a core curriculum, a major, an optional minor, and elective courses. The core curriculum follows a “modes of thought and reasoning” model and requires students to take courses in social analysis, ethical reasoning, literature, civilization studies, and the arts, science and mathematics, writing and rhetoric intensive seminars, and regional challenges in Asia. Typical types of courses offered include Social and Political Thought, World Literature, An Introduction to Asian Religions through Art, Human Rights, Art of the Personal Essay, Physics, Calculus, and Public Health Challenges in Asia.
