School of International Service


The School of International Service (SIS) at American University offers a comprehensive liberal arts program for undergraduate students, professional training in international affairs for Master’s students, and a multidisciplinary program for doctoral students. The programs are based on an interdisciplinary curriculum that encourages students to explore international affairs with distinguished faculty members and policy practitioners. Housed in a spectacular LEED-gold certified building, the school offers exceptional opportunities that evolve from the university’s location in a premier world capital. The links between the school and its Washington, DC environment nourish the academic and professional growth of its students.

SIS graduates work in a variety of professions in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors throughout the world. Career advisors support students to identify internships to complement their coursework, assist with professional networking, and help with job placement. Additionally, the school’s more than 20,000 worldwide alumni offer students an extensive network upon which to draw in their internship and career explorations.
