Students outside of SPA's Kerwin Hall

American University's School of Public Affairs is a place where knowledge meets action. By bringing scholar-teachers and practitioners together around society's most pressing concerns, SPA drives transformational progress in policy, politics, justice, law, and public administration.

Teaching at SPA is a powerful outgrowth of our research, as we prepare the next generation for leadership. At the crux of our innovative curriculum are the latest technology, project-based instruction, and a wealth of internships in Washington, D.C.
