Overview

A step forward, AAU laid the foundation stone of the graduate programs through the establishment of the Deanship of Graduate Studies, originally a supplementary channel of the undergraduate programs. Today, the undergraduate studies and the graduate studies work together to realize the goals of AAU. After an indepth examination of the market, the AAU decided to launch some local market demand-based graduate programs.

The Deanship of Graduate Studies has turned into the Faculty of Graduate Studies with two departments: Natural & Applied Sciences Department and Humanities & Administrative Sciences Department.
