The Community of Scholars Program at American University offers rising juniors and seniors who are academically outstanding the chance to broaden their understanding of international relations by enrolling in a 3-credit college class designed just for them.
The Community of Scholars will introduce you to the advancing field of global affairs through college-level coursework. Whether online or in class at AU, instructors will provide dynamic lectures and engage students in discussions as well as simulations, such as a mock National Security Council debate. By the end of the program, you might find yourself developing a national security strategy or conducting a conflict assessment of an ongoing insurgency.
