The American University in Cairo’s School of Global Affairs and Public Policy (GAPP) prepares its graduates to take the lead in shaping the future of their nations and the world at large, with a strong belief in the interaction between international and public affairs, an unwavering commitment to ethics and the rule of law as well as a recognition of the unique role that the media play in shaping public policy.

Over the past years GAPP has become the leader in the Middle East in educating and empowering students committed to global affairs and public policy. The core competencies of GAPP are effective communication skills, multi/interdisciplinary focus, professional experience, global perspective and policy research.

GAPP consists of three academic departments: Public Policy and Administration, Law, and Journalism and Mass Communication, including five research centers: the Center for Migration and Refugee Studies (CMRS), the Cynthia Nelson Institute for Gender and Women Studies (IWGS), the Kamal Adham Center for Television and Digital Journalism, the Middle East Studies Center (MESC) and the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdul Aziz Alsaud Center for American Studies and Research (CASAR), and the Executive Education unit. All GAPP academic programs offer students unique opportunities to develop a comprehensive overview of the strategic issues that are of great concern to global citizens today.
