AUBH – Ready for the Spring Semester!

Just recently, the American University of Bahrain (AUBH) welcomed its students to campus as they start the new academic year.

Gulf Insider visited the campus on the first day of classes to talk to some of the students and faculty about how they felt to be back and what they are looking forward to this academic year. Here’s what they had to say:

How did it feel to be back on campus?

“We’ve been at home for a long time, we have missed human interaction! We met a lot of new people, made new friends, and are really excited for what’s ahead”, Student Council Vice President, Ali Al Toblani said.

“I love sports – so the Sports Club was the first thing I signed up for. We’re looking forward to the ‘Students vs Professors’ football match coming up” he added.

“The University has done so much to keep us safe. It’s so exciting to have so many new faces in the classroom. We also had the opportunities for our hybrids – students who are off campus – to be here as well virtually”, Sociology Associate Professor, Dr. Paula Smith Hawkins, said.

“We’ve been waiting a long time to have a life back on this campus. After spending a long time carefully planning the 9 buildings, it’s great to see the students finally using them to their full potential.” said Chief Operating Officer, William D. Hurt.

What’s new?

The University has recently introduced three new degree programmes at the undergraduate level:

  • Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering
  • Bachelor of Business Administration in Digital Marketing & Social Media
  • Bachelor of Business Administration in Human Resources

These programmes were announced following the University’s announcement on achieving eligibility to proceed with an Application for Accreditation with the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). Once awarded, AUBH would be among the sole ten universities accredited by WSCUC worldwide.

Are online classes still available?

AUBH has a flexible attendance scheme based on a dual-modality learning module – meaning that students have the option to attend classes on campus or online through the immersive camera system where they can see their classmates, professors, and the presentation shared to the class.

This flexible setup also facilitates the transition of international students who began their learning online and plan to join on-campus classes once they are able to travel to the Kingdom.

AUBH gives students access to real-world scenarios and practical, case-based lessons. Adopting the latest in learning technology, library, labs, and sports facilities, they aim to keep the campus bustling with academic and extra-curricular life among its multi-cultural student body.
