What Berry Students Say!  

American University in Cairo
Cairo, Egypt

Because Egypt is currently under a US Department of State Travel Warning, this program is not an option for Berry College students.

The American University in Cairo is located on Tahrir Square in the heart of downtown Cairo. Cairo is the largest city in Africa with a population of 16 million. An exciting and easily maneuverable city, Cairo is known for its historic significance and modern life. It is also thought of by many as the political, cultural and journalistic center of the Arab world.

Program of Study
The American University in Cairo was founded in 1919 and is considered one of the top universities in the region. In 2002 there was an enrollment of about 5000 students, of which 86% were Egyptian. English is the second language for most students although almost all classes are taught in English. Students can enroll in a variety of liberal-arts type classes at AUC, including many courses focused on Middle Eastern topics. Students also have the opportunity to study Arabic, which they may find both interesting and useful during their semester abroad. Search the course catalog.

Living Arrangements
Students can choose to either live in the Zamalek Student Residence, the New Campus residence, or in local apartments. Zamalek is located on Gezira Island in a beautiful residential area. The other campus residence is located on campus in New Cairo, the new home of AUC. Both feature a computer room, an exercise room, a garden area, a lounge, a bookstore and a cafeteria. Students can purchase food in the cafeteria or order in from nearby restaurants. Apartments near the school can be found with the help of the International Students Services Office at the University. Click here for more accommodation information.

Students pay Berry College tuition; on campus housing requires a $300 refundable deposit and $25 application fee, $1800 for a double room and $2100 for a single room. Triples and quads are also available. Housing fees include linens and bedding. Students should budget $300/month for food. Moderately priced, furnished apartments run about $500 per month (excluding utilities). All prices approximate and subject to change.

Successful applicants must have completed 30 credit hours and most have higher than a 2.5 GPA.

Safety concerns
There may be concerns over students' safety in Cairo, particularly given recent events in the Middle East. Cairo has the same safety issues of any sprawling city. When considering this program, students should check the consular information sheet for Egypt, as well as AUC's security and safety page.

Amy J. Johnson Scholarship
The Amy J. Johnson Scholarship was established by her family in memory of Dr. Johnson, an associate professor of History who died as a consequence of an automobile accident. One scholarship worth $1,000 is awarded annually to a female Berry College student to defray expenses arising from studying for a semester or longer in Egypt or another Middle Eastern, African or so-called "developing" country. Competition is in spring for the following fall or spring. Contact IP for more information.

What Berry students say:
"I was often the only American in the class -- the rest were Egyptians. I met Egyptians on the metro, in restaurants, at clubs -- everywhere. They're super friendly and often eager to talk to a foreigner." 

"It was one of the best experiences of my life."
