About Asian University for Women

Asian University for Women is the first of its kind: an independent, regional institution dedicated to excellence, women’s education and leadership development – global in outlook, but rooted in the contexts and aspirations of the people of Asia.

Located in Chittagong, Bangladesh, AUW exists to educate and empower a rising network of women leaders through the transformative power of an American-style liberal arts and sciences education. Open to women from all walks of life, AUW particularly encourages women who are the first in their family to get a university education.

The Undergraduate Program at Asian University for Women (AUW) off­ers students the opportunity to gain relevant, interdisciplinary knowledge across multiple fields. Students are empowered to think critically, gain both breadth and depth of knowledge in a discipline of choice, communicate e­ffectively, and work courageously to address the most pressing issues of the day with innovative and bold solutions.

OUR MISSION & VISION

ASIAN UNIVERSITY FOR WOMEN (AUW) seeks to graduate women who will be skilled and innovative professionals, service oriented leaders in the businesses and communities in which they will work and live, and promoters of intercultural understanding and sustainable human and economic development in Asia and throughout the world.

LIBERAL ARTS CURRICULUM

AUW follows the American-style Liberal Arts curriculum that takes an interdisciplinary approach to education. Under this model, students learn about a variety of disciplines while getting in-depth knowledge of their chosen major. This unique system sets our students apart as they gain both the breadth and depth of knowledge.

ACADEMIC OFFERING

AUW offers three distinct but integrated academic programs.

1. An Undergraduate program in the liberal arts and sciences with majors in Bioinformatics; Economics; Environmental Sciences; Politics, Philosophy & Economics; and Public Health.

2. Access Academy: A foundation year of courses focused on English communication skills, critical thinking, and strategies for life-long learning. Students take courses in Language and Composition, Reading across Disciplines, World Civilizations, Geography, Computer Literacy, Calculus, Leadership Seminars and Karate. These courses prepare students to succeed in AUW’s rigorous liberal arts and sciences undergraduate program.

3. Pathways for Promise: A foundation year of courses focused on English communication skills and mathematics for students who are invited to enroll under a sponsored program.

An AUW student can enter directly into the undergraduate program or through Access Academy. A student entering through Pathways for Promise will ordinarily require five years to graduate. Those entering through Access Academy will require four years of study in addition to at least two summers of coursework. Those entering directly into the undergraduate program can complete course requirements in three academic years plus two summers of course work.
