Founded in 1934, American University's School of Public Affairs is one of the top-ranked schools of public affairs in the United States. Like American University itself, the school has a deep, historical commitment to public service and attracts both undergraduate and graduate students intent on careers that serve the public interest, whether in the public, private, or non-profit sectors.
