Across Culture and History
The B.A. in Humanities, Society and Culture program delivers a broad curriculum that develops critical and informed thinking about the world’s humanitarian issues today and for the future by delivering an interdisciplinary course structure that develops strong competency in theory and research.
Students will learn the principles, concepts and theories behind modern social issues and democratic transformations as they examine modern societies with a range of practical and academic methods in the social sciences and humanities, including philosophy, cultural anthropology, history, the arts, and literature and film studies.
Graduates of the BA in Humanities, Society and Culture program can expect to:
- Understand the basic principles of historical developments and present issues in the transformations of modern democratic societies examined and interpreted through the humanistic fields of philosophy, religion, history, cultural anthropology, gender studies, cultural studies, arts and literature
- Have a broad knowledge of ideas and issues across the fields of art, literature, film, philosophy, religion, history, politics, sociology, anthropology, and psychology
- Be able to address and solve complex theoretical and practical issues and problems in changing contexts
- Effectively communicate issues, problems and dilemmas and their solutions
- Take effective and responsible action both individually and within a team
The BA program in Humanities, Society and Culture prepares our students for a variety of jobs in cultural, educational, humanitarian and communications-oriented international and national institutions, governmental agencies, NGOs and media, as well as in the fields of cultural diplomacy, cultural management and cultural reporting. Alternately, students can use it as a launching point for further graduate studies either at AAU or at respected universities around the world.
This is a full-time program worth 180 ECTS credits (equivalent to 90 US credits). The standard time of completion is 3 years. Graduates receive a dual-accredited bachelor’s degree and they may use either the Czech “Bc.” or the American “B.A.”
In order to apply for an undergraduate (bachelor’s degree) program at AAU, applicants must submit a completed Application Form (which can be filled out online) and ALL of the documents listed below.

AAU has a number of graduate programs to choose from for those having completed an undergraduate degree and wishing to continue their studies at AAU. Graduates of the B.A. Humanities, Society and Culture are well prepared to continue to our M.A. in Humanities or our M.A. in International Relations.
Anglo-American University offers scholarships to its alumni which apply to any further programs of study (including the Chapman Prague MBA) as well as to any individual courses. Alumni Scholarships apply to the first year of study only.
Thanks to the dual accreditation of AAU's degrees, our alumni have their doors open to the world. The American WSCUC accreditation means that it is much easier for you to continue with further graduate studies at top schools in the United States or anywhere else across the globe.
Some of our notable alumni have continued on to, for example, Oxford University, Kings College in London, and Columbia University.

Merit-Based Scholarships and Financial Aid
The best students at AAU can study for free! Through a series of financial incentives, you can better manage your tuition costs, helping keep a distinguished education affordable. We provide scholarships based on academic achievement measured by a student’s Grade Point Average (GPA). Your GPA is calculated cumulatively from the beginning of your studies at AAU. To be eligible for the merit-based scholarship, you must have already completed two full-time semesters and have taken at least 4 courses the previous semester. The level of your GPA then determines the tuition discount as shown in the table below. Typically, over 11% of our degree-seeking students receive this scholarship and it may range from 10% to 100% of your tuition covered depending on your GPA.
Financial aid is also available in the form of manageable installments of tuition, as well as the opportunity to work at AAU while you study.
