Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

American International University-Bangladesh (AIUB)

AIUB established Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) to ensure professionally creative education for aspiring students. Recent researches have shown that graduates of liberal arts and social sciences display critical judgment, far-sighted vision, high aesthetics and moral sense. Graduates of FASS are finding more avenues open for them for their self-actualization on the one side and attractive incentives on the other. In response to the growing demand, FASS crafted a balanced blend of theoretical and practical lessons in its curriculum and pooled highly accomplished professionals from home and abroad to inspire and inculcate its students. Further, FASS makes it point to organize regular field visits, seminars, study circles, workshop etc. so that students’ learning is underpinned by first hand experiences for their sound and solid knowledge and expertise.
