Whether you are studying business, architecture, design, engineering, health sciences or mass communication, the General Education courses will form the foundation of your undergraduate degree program at Canadian University Dubai.

General education courses are designed to give you a broad spectrum of knowledge in both academic and societal concerns that will help you as you progress through your learning and move on to explore both career and personal development opportunities.

These courses cover a wide range of subjects, from music appreciation to social entrepreneurship, and will give you the opportunity to learn more about subjects outside of your major, while helping you to develop key skills in areas such as communication, problem solving, ethical reasoning and social culture.

At CUD, students find General Education courses to be an enjoyable outlet to explore other skills and interests, from art and music to language and technology. They also present an excellent opportunity to meet students from other majors throughout the University.
