American University Launches Online International Relations Graduate Program

WASHINGTON, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  American University's School of International Service (SIS), the largest school of international relations in the United States, announced today it is offering a fully web-based Master of Arts in International Relations degree. International Relations Online is the first, top-tier, online, graduate program in International Relations. The first classes will begin in May 2013.

"With International Relations Online, SIS and its faculty are educating and preparing top international relations students to apply their knowledge and make an impact in an increasingly interconnected and complex world," said James Goldgeier, Dean, School of International Service, American University.

International Relations Online is designed for students who would like to begin an international relations career as well as those already working in the field—from anywhere in the United States and around the world.

Students will participate in weekly class sessions in an innovative, live, virtual classroom where they will interact with renowned SIS faculty and a diverse group of peers to analyze and discuss course content. The degree program features highly produced, self-paced content accessible to students 24/7 from anywhere they have an Internet connection.

Like AU's on-campus program, International Relations Online features a curriculum that provides students with a strong grounding in the field of international relations and the professional skills to succeed in their careers. International Relations Online students will also gain specialized knowledge by selecting a focus of study in either Sustainable International Development or Global Security and Conflict Resolution.

International Relations Online students will meet the same academic requirements and selective admissions criteria as students attending AU's on-campus programs. Students will attend weekly online class sessions and complete a research project, or capstone, before the completion of the program. Students will also have the chance to meet classmates and faculty on campus and participate in AU's commencement.
