Gulf Studies Certificate Program

The Gulf Studies Certificate Program is designed for visiting students or non-degree-seeking students who wish to spend a semester at A.U.K. focusing on regional history, politics, society, culture, and the arts. Students are required to take a total of 4 courses (12 credit hours) from the courses recommended by the Director of the Center for Gulf Studies. Students are asked to contact the director for current course listings. All courses must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. Not all courses may be available every semester. As new courses are developed, more choices will become available for certificate electives. For students with no background in Arabic, ARAB 102 or ARAB 201 (Arabic as a Second Language I or II) is recommended. For students with a background in Arabic, ARAB 215 (Arab Composition I) or ARAB 205 (Arab-Islamic Civilization) is recommended. It is recommended that students choose courses applicable to the Gulf Studies Program in both the humanities (including the following prefixes: ARAB, ART, COMM, ENGL, and MUSC) and in the social sciences (including the following prefixes: HIST, IR, PLSC, and SBSA) in consultation with the Program Lead and/or in consultation with their academic advisor.
