At The American University in Cairo, it is our priority to provide students with the most enriching, impactful, and enjoyable university experience. With our liberal arts education system as well as our wide range of co-curricular activities, on and off-campus services, and student development programs, our goal is to create an environment that allows our diverse community of students from all around Egypt and the world to become well-rounded individuals prepared for life beyond higher education. The University offers a wide selection of majors including sciences and engineering, social sciences, business administration, mass communication, and visual arts. Outside of the classroom, students interested in anything from arts to sports to goodwill can find a club or organization for it. In short, AUC has something for everyone.
