West Virginia University has partnered with the Royal University for Women in Bahrain to give RUW students the opportunity to earn an American degree through a special Transfer Articulation Partnership. RUW students can transfer to WVU at any point during their first three years at RUW to have 100% of their credits applied to a degree at WVU.


RUW Students can transfer to the WVU School of Art & Design to study Art History, Technical Art History, Graphic Design, or Game Design and Interactive Media.
