About AUC

Located in Cairo, in the heart of the Middle East, AUC is a leading English-language, American-accredited institution of higher education and center of intellectual, social and cultural life of the Arab world.

Old history


AUC is making history every day. Throughout its history, AUC has balanced a strong commitment to liberal arts education with a concern for the region's needs for practical applications and professional specializations. Today, AUC emphasizes a liberal arts education, with all undergraduate students studying a common set of courses in the humanities and the natural and social sciences as part of the University's Core Curriculum.



At AUC, we take full advantage of the fact that we are located in one of the most unique and dynamic cities in the world. We take inspiration from Cairo in our academic programs, using it as a site for learning and integrating it into our curriculum. Home to ancient wonders and some of the world’s most groundbreaking innovations, Cairo is the gateway to the world for AUC students.
