Open Curriculum

AIU’s educational philosophy follows an open curriculum to truly address each student as an individual. In an Open Curriculum students first determine their individual strengths and weaknesses within the scope of their current work, taking into account future aspirations before choosing the optimal courses for their Academic Curriculum or Course List. Key considerations are market opportunities available within the intended major, industry, and geographic region. Participation within the world economy is no longer bound by geographic lines or your immediate surroundings as mirrored by AIU students some of who study thousands of miles away. Students are not limited to the courses below. None of these courses are required. During the first phase of the AIU program students may decide to include one or more of the courses below as part of their Academic Curriculum or Course List while utilizing the AIU online Library’s 108 million references, 16 million full text journals articles and periodicals, and 29,000 books to complement their learning materials.

What is the difference between AIU students and students at traditional universities?

Atlantic International University programs are oriented toward the mid-career adult and working professional. Conversely, classroom universities are attracting the 18 to 21-year olds whose life goals and ambitions have yet to be established. This is true especially at the undergraduate level. AIU does no compete with such traditional schools. AIU students know who they are, know exactly what they want to do and are interested in a challenging and rewarding educational experience. For this reason, they are often more motivated than students at traditional universities. In addition, AIU students gain significant advantages from their professional experience. Not only are they able to draw from the knowledge they have developed throughout their career thus far, but they may apply earned credit for what they have already learned toward their program.
