AISGW at American University



Master’s degree options for AISGW participants

American University has partnered with AISGW to offer Master degree options to AISGW affiliated participants who will be able to choose from three degrees in AU’s School of Education (SOE). These programs are built on a cohort-based design, include discounted tuition for AISGW participants, and are designed for those participants who want to make a lasting positive difference in the lives of children and engage in transformative education policy and practice.

Informational webinars are offered in fall and early winter. Click here for the current schedule.
