COURSES

With a little careful planning and close collaboration with the American University of Armenia and your home university, you may study abroad at AUA during the Fall and/or Spring semesters. A list of currently available courses can be found on our Academic Catalog. Not all courses listed are offered both semesters so be sure to stay in close contact with the American University of Armenia as well as your academic advisor to solidify your list of preferred (and alternate) courses. 

Students may take courses offered both at the undergraduate and graduate levels as long as they meet all required prerequisites. If you are currently in your undergraduate studies and looking to take some graduate level courses, this is feasible as long as the professor of the graduate course confirms your registration. Please contact the Office of Admissions at StudyAbroad@aua.am with any questions you may have regarding this process.
