Asia University America Program

AUAP-CWU is an English language and culture program which has been integrated into the regular curriculum of the Asia University faculties (Business Administration, Economics, International Relations, Multicultural Communications, Law, and Urban Innovation). During their study abroad program, Asia University students earn credit from Asia University and are not enrolled as regular Central students.

The AUAP curriculum emphasizes communicative, interactive, functional, English-through-content instruction. The curriculum includes courses in three main areas: content courses, issue- and theme-based courses, and functional courses. Asia University students are offered twenty hours of instruction per week. The specific courses offered include: Integrated English Skills, Functions of English, American Studies, International Communications/Global Issues, TOEIC, and Career Development.

A unique component of the AUAP is the International Peer Advisor Program. In this program, Western students are recruited, hired, and trained to work with AUAP students in the residence halls. Peer Advisors, who are given special intercultural training, facilitate AUAP student orientation, plan activities, advise students about personal problems, assist with medical emergencies, help students understand and adjust to American culture, and facilitate student involvement in campus and community activities

Enrollment in the AUAP-CWU is from 25-75 students per cycle with one group on campus from late September to mid-February, and the other from late February through late July.
