SPA Campus Visits

SPA welcomes your visit to the beautiful American University campus, ideally positioned in the epicenter of the Public Affairs field--Washington, D.C.! Our campus visits are unparalleled experiences. We offer you the opportunity to meet with an admissions representative and to tour the campus with a member of our Graduate Student Ambassador team.

The School of Public Affairs (SPA) is now hosting on-campus visits Monday-Friday.

Campus visits are primarily designed for our on-campus master's degree programs. Students interested in SPA’s Ph.D., Executive MPA, graduate certificates, and/or online programs should contact us at to learn more about visit options.

If you are not able to travel to the area, we also invite prospective students to schedule a virtual campus visit.
