Studying international relations and history at AU really sharpened my critical thinking, researching, and writing skills. My best advice would be to look for the best professors because they make a huge difference. I was very lucky and had amazing professors. Happy I went here!

I thought American was a great place. The courses were taught by experts and the schedule was designed in such a way that you could work if you needed to.

Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2017

The Producing Film and Video program is a great program, and has really made a difference in my knowledge and edification. On a quarterly basis, the program provides vast knowledge for those who are seeking to be producers, writers, and more. Great program!

American university has great professors who are invested in student success and personal development. It is a welcoming community and has a diverse group of students with similar minded people. American is also located in a great area for finding internships and are able to make student competitive to the work force.

American University offers a range of Arts and Science programs that are also politically focused. It is located in Washington DC and has a lot of amenities available to its students. There are also a variety of programs that support student life and school spirit.
3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Hospitality Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The quality of the education offered at the University of Puerto Rico is excellent. The university is divided in 11 campuses, with each campus having a stronger academic program than the others. For example if you're interested in medicine, the Rio Piedras campus would be the best choice, if you're interested in Hotel management, then the Carolina campus would be best.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2008

I attended the Washington College of Law at American University from 2005-2008 to obtain my Juris Doctor. The WCL curriculum put a strong emphasis on research and writing, with a two-semester comprehensive program that I thoroughly appreciated and has served me well in my profession (especially given that many colleagues went to schools where there was less emphasis on this part, and thus a critical component of their legal training was lacking). Unfortunately, I think almost all of my favorite professors, with a handful of exceptions, have moved on to other schools/positions/careers, so I cannot speak to much of the current faculty. I can say that the school recently had the grand opening of its new law building, which has expanded facilities and lots of resources for law students, and will be a definite bonus for anyone attending in the future.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2017

They have done an amazing job making this masters program work efficiently online. I still feel incredibly connected to my peers and teachers and have never lacked support or resources. So far I feel like I am getting my moneys worth
2.29 out of 5.0
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

My first semester my classes were a joke. I didn't feel like I learned anything of value from them. This semester my classes seem more relevant and useful to the practice of teaching. It is a highly ranked program Ijust dont care for the fluffy understanding of teaching. As if all students come prepared for the next grade.
