Company Description

A global center of study and service, American University features some of the most proficient scholars and offers a wealth of opportunities both locally and abroad. American University students have a reputation for being some of the most politically active students of any school in the nation. Considering that AU is located in Washington, D.C., it is certainly surrounded by many opportunities for such activity. However, the University itself also offers a wealth of centers, institutes and programs, such as the Center for Global Peace, the Center for Community Engagement and Service and the Women and Politics Institute, among many others. American University students pursue degrees in various academic areas. Offering more than 55 bachelor's degrees, over 50 master's degrees, a number of doctoral degrees and a J.D. program, AU offers students choices in six major schools or colleges. These include the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business, and the School of Public Affairs. Active throughout the community and the world, many AU students undertake internships. Also, AU Abroad, American University's international study program, gives AU students the chance to study overseas. Through AU's world-renowned Washington semester program, students from other states and countries frequently come to AU to study as well. With more than 140 countries and all 50 states represented by its student body, AU has no shortage of diversity. Faculty at AU are top performers in their fields. Many are policy makers, journalists, diplomats and leaders in the fields of science, business and the arts. Financial aid opportunities are extensive and include both forms of aid that need to be repaid such as loans and such sources as grants, scholarships and fellowships which do not. These awards are available to eligible students, and can be discussed with one of AU's counselors.
