Introducing the Modular Master's Program

By Bobbe Baggio

The new Modular Master’s program at American University was developed with you in mind. It provides convenience, flexibility and multi-disciplinary relevance. It allows you to select both the content and skills you want to position yourself in an evolving and demanding career marketplace. You can choose the combinations you want to meet the needs you have for changing or advancing your career. This program was created to meet the needs you have at work, in your career and in the greater global community. Designed for working professionals with diverse backgrounds, it will help you apply the knowledge, skills and attitudes you gain to real world problems and be in demand for the career you choose.

In today’s dynamic global workplace, the Modular Master’s program at American University gives you the freedom to choose and combine your interests in a way that makes sense to you. For example, if you are interested in feeding the poor children of the world, you might combine Nutrition Education and Project Planning and Evaluation. If you are interested in digital media and biostatistics you might want a new position in disease prevention or health promotion in pharmaceuticals, government, Non-government agencies, business or education. The Modular Master’s can help you acquire the interdisciplinary skills you need to change or advance your career.

We look forward to meeting you. Our Career Advisors and faculty are ready to help you meet your personal career goals.

All the best!
