The American University School of International Service offers three fully-online Masters degrees in International Relations: The Master of Arts in International Relations (MAIR) Online, the Master of Arts in Social Enterprise (SE) Online, and the Executive Master of International Service (MIS) Online.

Starting with course planning and your first-semester registration all the way through choosing your concentration, your Academic Advisor will work with you to maximize your time at AU. We can identify academic support resources for you and work with financial aid/student accounts/other offices on campus on your behalf. If you need to add or drop courses, request extensions for particular course work, or take a semester leave for any reason, please don't hesitate to contact us.

The resources found here offer general information about the IR Online program to help students plan and structure their graduate degree. For questions about this information, or to request an appointment with your Academic Advisor, email

The IR Online Program Office is located on American University's main campus in Washington DC.

IR Online Orientation

Students in the IR Online program have access to an academic bootcamp, which guides students through resources, and enables them to refresh, practice, and strengthen their skills in required areas of the degree.
