American University Graduate Reviews
The education is great, professors really invest in students education and want to help them understand and succeed inside and outside the classroom. Faculty are always creating opportunity for students to become involved and make connections to get internships and jobs. There is never a shortage of connections.
Overall, American University is a solid private university. Most of the professors in the College of Arts and Sciences are excellent and really want the students to succeed. Other aspects of the school, like the financial aid department, are terrible to deal with and don't seem like they care much about graduate students.
It is a very diverse University, warm and embracing. Excellent professors and a alumni network. American University boasts of international students from all continents of the world, this reflects on a rich cultural environment, where students learn beyond the classroom without having to travel
