Khalid Al Mashikhi CAAS prides itself on its deep commitment to provide each student, who passes through the doors of DU, with a comprehensive education in arts, sciences, critical thinking, creativity, imagination and innovation, and the expression of complex ideas in a non-complex manner. CAAS faculty members always encourage the students to work on their own and develop their knowledge of the subject and functional skills through a wide variety of learner-friendly, challenging, innovative, and motivating tasks and activities that significantly contribute to the development of their intellectual, social and emotional skills.

Beyond the core curricula, students who choose CAAS as their home for study will find the broadest range of academic disciplines that CAAS offers. Students may explore their course of study in any of our 6 academic departments and 26 interdisciplinary diploma, Bachelor’s and Master’s programs.
