Most Helpful Review for American University

I've found that the edge that American University has is the range of classes offered. The classes required for each major and much more focused than other schools I've looked into. I fell in love with only taking glasses that truly interest and intrigue me as oppose to a large number of broad requirements. I've learned more because of the extra interest and direction that the school allows its students.

    AU is a good school with a beautiful campus right in DC. If you are interested in international studies/relations, political science, economics or journalism go here. The school offers plenty of majors in its different schools but most are smaller than the big ones mentioned above, but nonetheless most have very good professors. The math and science departments are small and some professors are not very good but they have certainly grown in the last few years.

    Wonderful campus, international student body and engaged and engaging professors have made this a fabulous experience so far. I have had the opportunity to create my own major within the School of Public Affairs. As a student in the Honors Program, classes are small, which has given me an opportunity to get to know my professors and vice versa.

    American has great professors, solid programs and a beautiful campus to study on. Students can live on campus in living/learning communities that enrich their lives and strengthen their skills. American also offers hundreds of clubs allowing students to explore their interests outside of the classes.
