Most of the MA students work full or part-time while pursuing their degrees. Many of them work on campus but some also find positions off campus at federal and non-profit institutions.For an estimation of the cost of attending AU, please visit the College of Arts and Sciences finance page.
There are several options for financing your Public History MA education. AU's Office of Financial Aid assists students applying for student loans. They have information for prospective graduate students in addition to resources for current graduate students.
Another option is working for the university.* AU's Human Resources department has a Student Jobs Portal. As a full-time employee, you can take advantage of tuition remission after working for the university for a semester. The tuition remission will cover up to 8 credits a semester and 20 credits per academic year.
*Note: Being an employee with AU is not the same as Federal Work Study.
