The School of Undergraduate Studies aims to offer its students a unique liberal arts education that acquaints them with diverse approaches to knowledge. The undergraduate programmes at AUD encourage students to think critically and creatively, to analyse and reason, to communicate effectively, and to draw evidence-based conclusions. It aims to achieve a balance between the range and depth of the subjects studied. The unique aspect of undergraduate programmes at AUD is that there are common modules for foundational skills comprising language, writing skills, communication skills, analytical reasoning and a core module in social sciences.

Students experience the flexibility of choosing courses from more than disciplinary area, thus exploring not merely their chosen disciplines but also relationships between disciplinary paradigms.
The School offers the following programmes:
