American University’s School of International Service (SIS) is a top-10 school of international affairs located in Washington, D.C. Since our founding in 1957, we have answered President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s call to prepare students of international affairs to “wage peace.” We do so because we believe the world needs leaders who are ready to serve. Students who come to SIS know that service is not a moment, it’s a mindset.

SIS, led by Dean James Goldgeier, is guided by more than 120 full-time faculty. Our world-renowned faculty—leading political scientists, economists, sociologists, anthropologists, demographers, geographers, historians, and experts in international development, global health, communications, energy, and the environment—produce transformational research and prepare more than 3,000 graduate and undergraduate students for global careers in government, nonprofits, and business.

SIS features a comprehensive liberal arts program for undergraduate students, professional training in international affairs for master’s students, including an innovative, live, online degree programs, and a multidisciplinary program for doctoral students.

Our numerous and flexible programs of study offer you a wide range of opportunities that include dual degrees, graduate certificates, online classes, executive degrees, a BA/MA, a three-year BA, a pre-college program, and more.

SIS offers masters programs in foreign policy and national security, international development, global and regional governance, international economics, peace and conflict resolution, ethics and human rights, communications, energy and environment, social enterprise, regional and comparative studies, and more.
