About American University

American University is a dynamic, medium-sized, college-centered research university located 4 miles from the White House in Northwest Washington, D.C. 90% of AU's faculty have the highest degree in their field and are considered experts. The average class size is 23 students, and the student to faculty ratio is 12:1. 93% of student are working, in graduate school, or both within six months of graduating from AU. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many research opportunities available both with current professors and in the city.

We use the greater city of Washington, D.C. as our learning laboratory. 89% of students have completed at least one internship by the time they graduate, and most student have two or three work experiences alongside taking classes or over the summer. These internships range from working on Capitol Hill, in non-governmental organizations and non-profit organizations, Fortune-500 companies, and Smithsonian museums. In addition to taking advantage of our location in our nation’s capital, students are globally-minded with almost 70% of our students studying abroad in over 135 programs around the world. Students also come from across the globe to study with us, making up a student population that represents all 50 states and 129 different countries.
