Studying international studies at AUS has given me the best of both worlds: a large and dynamic campus and an intensive and focused major. I believe that the diversity of both students and faculty as well as numerous and interesting perspectives makes AUS an ideal environment for a strong basis from which to develop a future career.

With great professors who engendered a culture of discussion and debate in their classes, the international studies program helped me develop my critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The program’s focus on diligent scholarship and active participation in the classroom were integral exercises in preparing me for the pressures of the workplace and were a great asset in pursuing graduate studies; I and several of my colleagues are either studying or were offered opportunities to pursue graduate studies at some of the top universities in the world. My experience at AUS, and the Department of International Studies in particular, added nuance to my view of the world; overall, it was an experience that was educational, fun and exhilarating!
