The Academic Catalog is a comprehensive guide that serves as a record of programs offered, courses, services, amenities, along with academic policies and procedures, here at AUAF. The online Catalog is the official Catalog whereby changes are incorporated at intervals throughout the year.
Degrees at AUAF:
A degree is not conferred for a mere collection of credits. A well-balanced, unified, and complete program of study is required. The overall program of the student frequently may exceed the minimum requirements as specified for each degree and students should plan carefully so that they can complete their degree within the required timeframe. The majority of students graduate with more than the 120 minimum required credits for the four-year degrees. The LLB requires more than 120 credits to graduate. Students who choose a minor may also require more than the minimum number of degree credits in order to graduate.
Students can participate in the graduation ceremony if they can reasonably complete all requirements by the end of the Spring semester. Students who need to take courses in the summer and fall will graduate in the following year.
Students will follow the degree plan in place at the time in which they declare their program. Should you wish to change your degree plan to a more recent version, contact your Academic Advisor for review and submit a Declaration form to the Registrar's Office with any changes. Students need to complete the general education requirements before moving on to 300 and 400-level classes. Despite the student’s choice of governing program requirements (degree plan), all students are bound by the current Catalogue with regard to prerequisites/corequisites for individual courses. Changes in Degree Plans are listed below.
Master's in Business Administration
Master degrees at AUAF are a minimum of two years of academic studies (usually longer) and require a thesis.
Minors at AUAF broaden students’ perspectives in interdisciplinary coursework and bridge together the major with an emphasis on a secondary focus.
Undergraduate students in good standing are eligible for one minor. Undergraduate students may be required or may choose to complete a minor as part of their Bachelor’s degree. Some degree programs may have specific program recommendations as to the minors to pursue.
A minor consists of at least 15 semester hours, including several upper-level academic works concentrated in one academic discipline, and the coursework must not be the same as the student’s major. A student interested in pursuing a minor should talk with their academic advisor about the particular discipline they want to pursue once they have declared a major. The minor declaration form must be submitted at least one semester (fall or spring) before graduation. Students choosing to complete a minor will graduate with more than 120 credit hours.
It is the responsibility of the student to make sure that they satisfy the requirements for the minor. Students should contact their advisor for any questions regarding the completion of the minor. If a student decides that they no longer wish to pursue a minor, they must contact the Office of the Registrar and follow the process to have it removed from their degree plan. Credits used to complete the minor cannot duplicate credits used to fulfill major requirements. Not all courses offered in the minor are offered during any given semester. Students should work with their academic advisor to plan accordingly. Course requirements for approved minors are as follows:
