Interdisciplinary Study

  • AU offers a number of interdisciplinary degrees. For example, a BA in communications, legal institutions, economics, and government prepares you to participate effectively in decision making for public affairs and deal with social problems as social issues. A BS in business and music (performance not required) is ideal for a career in the for-profit music industry. You can also design your own program leading to a BA or BS (or an MA or MS) in interdisciplinary studies. You’ll need to observe all the pertinent regulations, but your program could wind up among AU’s established interdisciplinary degrees.

Study Abroad

  • 55 percent of AU students have studied abroad. And why not? With 100+ programs, some at many of the world’s most prestigious universities, in 41 countries, you can earn credit towards your AU degree whatever your major; learn a foreign language; and enjoy an international internship. Study abroad can be a life-changing experience. As one AU student noted, “My semester abroad was probably the most formative experience of my life so far. It fundamentally changed the way I see myself and the world . . . My Spanish improved enormously. . . If you embrace the challenge it is incredibly rewarding.”

Internships

  • A memorable internship can dramatically improve your professional life, even affirming or changing your career aspirations. An internship allows you to test classroom theory in the real world, may carry academic credit, gives you valuable skills, and starts you networking for the future.
