Degree: International Law and Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2008

American University (AU) isa great place to learn. but you must be proactive, advocate for yourself and make sure to build a challenging and well balanced course load, take advantage of internships, study abroad, and definitely the honors program and capstone projects.

Degree: Jewish/Judaic Studies
Graduation Year: 2010

I enjoyed my experience at American. I loved that it had a real college while being situated in the city. The academic level of the classes were a good match for me, and I liked that the classes weren't too big for me to form a relationship with professors. There is kind of a large presence of Greek life on the campus, which I was surprised by, but I certainly didn't have any trouble finding friends not involved in Greek life. One piece of advice--it doesn't matter how prestigious a reputation a college has...it matters much more if its a good fit for YOU.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2010

It's a mid-size school in the middle of a great city. The campus is beautiful and the students are for the most part very friendly, intelligent, and active politically.

Degree: Economics

The classes are great and the faculty generally knowledgeable and passionate. The econometrics sequence could use more focus on application.

Degree: Biotechnology
Graduation Year: 2015

It all started with my desire to join the Department of Biology at American University located in Washington DC. I applied for the Bachelor of Science in Biology before moving further. As a member of College of Arts and Sciences, I have passed ten useful courses. I would recommend this college to everyone interested in biotechnology fields: you will gain an opportunity to become a part of genome research institution or government regulatory agency with outstanding career perspectives. To gain more knowledge, I continued with master’s degree in biotechnology. I studied biotechnology industry in details by conducting genome researches and applying statistics. On the whole, after covering proteomics, neuroscience, biochemistry, molecular biology, and even business, I decided to take a professional trip. While on the go, I still make good money as a freelance academic writer by editing and writing from scratch. At http://studentessaywriter.com/, I can handle everything: from a simple biology essay to more sophisticated technical writing or dissertation. I plan to join Biogen Idec to discover and develop therapies in the closest future.

Degree: Education, General
Graduation Year: 2012

I attended AU for a double major in Education/Psychology, and the Masters in special Education, If they had a PHD. I would also attend that program. The reason people complain about the school is they blame AU for issues they could have corrected themselves, but didn't and eventually they either got dropped or quit. This is not the responsibility of AU and this school is a great educational experience. This of course is just my opinion, don't cry when you wash out of your own responsibility of educating yourself. Any college can give you the proper tools, but as adults in college it is our responsibility to meet the obligations that come along with the institution. For anyone considering AU as a possibility I can only share my educational experience, it was a pleasure attending this college. I felt all my hard work paid off, and i was properly educated and equipped to obtain employment with degrees in hand. This of course means that AU does not take you by the hand and walk to you your interview and make sure you are employed. It means that they give you the necessary tools to go obtain that job with the preparatory education they provided you. I wish you all the best!
