From the Institution

American University's rigorous curriculum features high-impact educational experiences that combine in-depth theoretical study with meaningful real-world experiences. Regardless of your choice of major, you'll acquire a solid foundation in liberal arts while pursuing thorough study in your chosen field. Our students learn outside of the classroom as much as they do inside through experiences made possible in our home city, where pivotal national and global decisions are made. Our network of world-class faculty and visiting scholars bring deep connections to influential companies and organizations in the public, private, and non-profit sectors and enhance the excellence of our programs. We are a university driven to make a difference. We step up, we show up, and we say "challenge accepted" to the issues that matter most to us-and our communities. Are you ready to join us?
