Office of Global & Immersive Studies

The Office of Global & Immersive Studies creates and provides study programs at AU, elsewhere in the United States, and abroad that serve AU’s mission to educate citizens capable of engaging with complex global issues. These programs are characterized by their integration of rigorous academic engagement with experiential learning. Programs include our more than 150 study abroad and exchange programs across the globe, including our AU Centers in Brussels, Madrid, and Nairobi; experiential-based programs in DC and other U.S. cities; and our English language and bridging programs designed for international students who wish to begin their university studies in the U.S. The experiential components amplify and extend the liberal arts learning that occurs on campus while enhancing students’ global engagement.
