Imagine spending three days a week at BBC News or at the Human Rights Campaign, or even at the US Senate. Or imagine living abroad-using an international city and cultural excursions as an extension of your classroom.
American University’s Mentorship Program is an enriching fall semester opportunity for select AU-bound students who want to jump start their professional or international education. In addition to dedicated faculty and administrator advisors, small classes, and special programming, the Mentorship program is the only opportunity for AU students to intern or study abroad in their first year.
Firmly rooted in the required AU Core curriculum, the Mentorship program gives students the opportunity to take many required courses in their first semester and the ability to graduate on time with the class of 2024.
