New Three-Year Scholars Program
AU offers unique and challenging three-year bachelor programs in Public Health, International Studies, and new for Fall 2013, Politics, Policy, and Law.

AU is Proud to be Tobacco- and Smoke-Free
After years of campus discussion, and in the face of increasing and convincing public health evidence documenting the risks associated with the use of tobacco products and exposure to secondhand smoke, American University will go and tobacco- and smoke-free on August 15, 2013.
In doing so, American University joins almost 1,200 tobacco-free colleges and universities nationwide that have taken similar measures.
