Studying abroad has a lot of perks so we understand why a lot of students in Bahrain opt for this option when pursuing further studies. But what if these students do not need to look further to get quality American-style education?
Today, we are providing you 5 reasons why the American University of Bahrain is an excellent option.
Quality American-style education
Mirroring the best universities in the United States, the American University of Bahrain offers a holistic journey for students and unique approach to education that fosters interaction and collaboration between students, faculty, and the professional community.
At AUBH, students are given the freedom to find the career path that is right for them. This means that during the first two years at the University, students have common general education courses that give them the skills to be productive, allow them to self-assess and change their minds to what suits them best. With that said, students can decide if they want to enroll in a different degree program while transferring with the maximum number of credit hours.
Innovative curriculum and courses
AUBH’s curriculum is built by experts to respond to new job requirements and adapt to global employability readiness. The University offers programs within the Colleges of Business & Management, Engineering, and Architecture & Design. Moreover, the University’s Founding President Dr. Susan E. Saxton, announced three new undergraduate programs and three more graduate programs in the pipeline, subject to HEC approval.

In 2020, AUBH announced their pursuit of a partnership with California State University Northridge (CSUN). They are in the process of forming this partnership, subject to HEC approval. Crafting this distinctive partnership will provide a significant educational advantage for Bahrain. Subject to final approval by the Higher Education Council (HEC), the two institutions plan to link their curricula and build a diverse, expansive and co-created higher education resource for the region. This system would provide qualified AUBH students with the opportunity to receive a CSUN degree by completing the final year of their coursework enrolled in CSUN. Both CSUN and AUBH students could benefit from international experiences ranging from a summer session or a semester abroad to graduation from CSUN, as well as access to high quality academic and professional programs and special projects that will enhance and globalize their study at AUBH.
CSUN is part of the 23-campus California State University system, the largest university system in the United States, with more than 480,000 students and nearly 53,000 faculty and staff. As part of this system, CSUN is one of the largest universities in the United States. CSUN combines breadth of study with rigorous professional preparation in a wide range of fields, including engineering, computer science, advanced STEM fields, business, sciences, healthcare, counseling and social service professions, entertainment industries, media and the arts, social sciences and humanities. The University has nine colleges and more than 2,000 faculty members who teach courses leading to bachelor’s degrees in 69 disciplines, master’s degrees in 69 fields and three doctorates. CSUN is widely recognized for impacting the lives of students and preparing them for leadership roles. For more information about CSUN, click here.
