Nestled on a cozy, tree-filled campus in Hays, Kansas (between Kansas City and Denver), Fort Hays State University is a place where a Midwestern, dedicated work ethic and boundless optimism meet opportunity. Fort Hays State University is a regional comprehensive university with more than 14,000 on-campus, graduate and international students. Undergraduate and graduate students pursue degrees in 31 academic departments in five colleges—the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; the College of Business and Entrepreneurship; the College of Education; the College of Health and Behavioral Sciences; and the College of Science, Technology and Mathematics—and through the Graduate School. Fort Hays State University (FHSU) and American University of Phnom Penh (AUPP) have partnered to offer dual-degree, undergraduate programs. These unique programs allow students to earn a U.S. degree from FHSU and at the same time earn a Cambodian degree from AUPP. Additionally, since students will be studying with faculty with international backgrounds, they will be world ready and better prepared for a globally focused job market upon graduation. Fort Hays State is a U.S. leader in innovative higher education, and this opportunity marks the first time that a U.S. degree can be completed by students entirely through study in Cambodia.
Fort Hays State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. The Higher Learning Commission is a regional accrediting organization that evaluates universities for credibility, authority and competency. Accreditation means that the university is a respected, quality educational institution. The FHSU/AUPP Dual-Degree Program is an opportunity for students not only to earn two degrees simultaneously (one from AUPP and one from FHSU), but also to gain an educational experience that has an international focus. Students study locally but live globally. Upon graduation they will be forward thinking and world ready, equipped with the skills that today’s employers seek.
AUPP offers the following programs in partnership with FHSU:
- Bachelor of Business Administration in Tourism & Hospitality Management
- Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Management
- Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design
