Education Philosophy


The American College of the Middle East understands that prospective students arrive with widely varying skills and learning capabilities. Hence, the college is committed to applying multiple methods of teaching and providing students with practical learning opportunities. ACM provides its students with a holistic learning experience using a unique “Learner Centered Approach.” By using this approach, students acquire the ability to learn through the application of carefully designed curricula, applied learning, and internships. ACM students also experience both self and leadership development through the learning experience, and also by participating in professional student societies and extracurricular activities to develop personal skills that are key to success.

Our curriculum highly reflects our philosophy on the importance of applied education. The curriculum is composed of three compatible integrated components that aim to provide students with a holistic learning experience. These components are: The Practical & Application Component, The Leadership & Self Development Component, and The Theoretical & Intellectual Component.
