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.
Six-Year Integrated University Program
The Liberal Education curriculum that formed the foundation of UA&P’s programs is now integrated and aligned with the new General Education curriculum , and the new course content to lead to the same Master’s degrees that UA&P has been offering.
While it is a seamless and integrated program, distinct phases with their own milestones are identified: the first two years is a Senior High School. It is a Liberal Arts curriculum designed to support the five Master’s programs being offered. As such it may be likened to the HUMSS and GAS strands. The next three years is the undergraduate program and the final year, if the student qualifies, will complete the Master’s degree. A studen,t however, may opt to move or transfer to another university after SHS here.
The following Master’s degrees are available:
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.
Currently, there are six five-year programs offered in the University:
Undergraduate (Four-Year) Programs
