The American University of Armenia (AUA) is an independent and private non-profit institution
affiliated with the University of California.
AUA is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges in the U.S.
Opening its doors in 1991, the American University of Armenia provides graduate education in Business and Management, Industrial Engineering, Computer and Information Sciences, Political Science and International Affairs, Health Sciences, Law, Teaching English as a Foreign Language, and Environmental Sciences. The use of English as the language of instruction is intended to facilitate communication between graduates of AUA and their colleagues throughout the world and to attract an international faculty and student body.
Parallel to its academic programs, AUA established centers to promote research in conjunction with graduate teaching and to help students develop hands-on research skills and tools. The University’s research centers now include the Center for Business Research and Development, the Engineering Research Center, the Turpanjian Center for Policy Analysis, the Environmental Conservation and Research Center, the Center for Health Services Research, the Center for Research and Development in Applied Linguistics and Language Training, and the Legal Research Center.
Many AUA programs have relationships with top-tier U.S. universities in a variety of fields. Renowned resident and visiting faculty from the U.S., Canada, Europe, Armenia, India, and the Middle East bring a unique global perspective to the classroom. The exchange between faculty members and students is based on intellectual openness. AUA students are highly motivated and are encouraged to formulate, critically and creatively, their individual paths of understanding and to pursue diversity in knowledge. Students from the U.S., China, Iran, Syria, Georgia, Russia, India, and other countries in the region join Armenian students for an increasingly international student population.
AUA provides a safe and welcoming environment, modern campus facilities, and expert student and faculty services. As a public service to the community, AUA also provides courses through its Extension Program.
