The American University of Beirut – Mediterraneo will offer two graduate programs in fall 2023. Because all AUB Mediterraneo programs are cohort-based, we admit students only once a year, in the fall term.
Linking to the American University of Beirut in Beirut
Students studying at the American University of Beirut – Mediterraneo will benefit from the university's close ties with the AUB campus in Beirut in the form of student exchanges, faculty exchanges, collaborative research projects, and expanded online and hybrid learning opportunities. AUB Mediterraneo bases its educational philosophy and practices on the American liberal arts model of higher education. The university supports freedom of thought and expression, and seeks to graduate men and women committed to creative and critical thinking, life-long learning, personal integrity, civic responsibility and leadership. As a twin campus of the American University of Beirut, it works to develop students who are thoughtful, tolerant, and engaged global citizens.
To further this global mission, all AUB Mediterraneo students must be eligible to travel to Lebanon and will be required to complete a period of residency at AUB in Beirut. This can be done in one of three ways:
- Conduct a project on community-based learning in Beirut
- Complete an internship in Beirut
- Spend one or two academic terms in Beirut
