Academics

Through a powerful combination of liberal arts education and professional specialization, UA&P puts due emphasis on the individual, the family, the community, and the Asia-Pacific region.

Faced with the harsh, ever-changing realities of today’s world, we’ve made it our mission to fully develop everything that is human in the individual. With our brand of whole-person education amid the working climate where adaptability is key, our graduates stand firm, knowing that every facet of their being can be fully utilized to catch up to the speed of life.

Course of Studies

Students go through a common liberal arts curriculum in their first three years in the University. On their third year, they begin to take subjects in their chosen field of specialization. If they meet all academic requirements of the graduate program, they may graduate with a master’s degree in five years.

Five -Year Programs

Undergraduate education under the College of Arts and Sciences not only prepares them for a specific specialization, but also gives them a well-rounded education that cultivates genuine intellectual discipline, a prerequisite to acquiring any specialized knowledge. After completing their undergraduate studies, they will move on to one of the Professional Schools or Institutes to pursue their chosen field of specialization, at the end of which, they receive a master’s degree.

This two-step education process arises from the conviction that a college student who immediately pursues a specialization without the solid grounding that a liberal education provides will be ill-prepared for a lifelong process of learning, as well as the premise that professional excellence today demands ever-increasing specialization no longer adequately met by a bachelor’s degree.
