It’s my honor and pleasure to welcome you to the 2022/2023 academic year in the College of Education (CEDU) at the American University in the Emirates (AUE). The College aligns itself with the vision, mission, and goals of the AUE. We are committed to preparing students as global citizens for future career aspirations and lifelong learning through quality teaching, research, and service opportunities.
The College of Education plays an important role in broadening students’ knowledge and sharpening their research skills. The College hosts the general education courses that range from social and behavioral sciences to natural sciences. Other general education courses equip students with communication skills, research methodology, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and orientation towards innovation and entrepreneurship. CEDU faculty teach courses in UAE/GCC societies, tolerance, happiness studies, women and politics, and Islamic culture and civilization. We will continue to enhance our curriculum to increase your employability chances.
While the Department of Special Education may be your academic home, the College of Education and the AUE’s staff, faculty, and administration are your larger support community. Individually and collectively, we are committed to your success. Our efforts to support you in reaching your educational goals breathe life into our mission and vision.
Please always remember that our aim is to help you thrive by providing you with an intellectually rich and inclusive environment that fosters your growth toward professional and scholarly work.
