Program Description

Founded in 1919, American University in Cairo (AUC) in Egypt is a leading English language, U.S.-accredited institution of higher education and the center of the intellectual, social and cultural life of the Arab world. Its community of students, parents, faculty, staff, trustees, alumni and other generous sponsors represents more than 60 countries. The University offers 39 undergraduate, 52 master’s and two PhD programs rooted in a liberal arts education that encourages students to think critically and find creative solutions to conflicts and challenges facing both the region and
the world. It also offers a globally recognized, professional, community-based education in English to meet the needs of the dynamic Egyptian and broader regional economies.

Why Egypt?
Egypt is a unique, ancient and wondrous destination with a lot to offer its visitors, regardless of their ages and interests. It is a fantastic place for travelers, scholars and residents alike. The Greater Cairo area has a population of more than 20 million people, with the city sprawled along the longest river in the world, the Nile. Encompassing the Great Pyramids of Giza, beautiful mosques and churches and numerous museums, the Arab world’s most populous city is teeming with life. Explore the winding streets of Cairo, and you will find a budding art and music scene as well as numerous cafes and coffee houses famous for their tea and backgammon. The Arabic dialect
spoken in Egypt is the most well-known and most understood in the Arab world, making Egypt a prime language learning center in the Middle East. When you decide to study in Egypt, you open yourself up to a new world filled with diverse cultures, histories,
art and ideas.

Pacific's Bilateral Exchange programs are suitable for students with strong leadership skills who want an immersion experience studying with local students, relying on local services with no management or oversight by Pacific or other U.S. providers.
