If you have experience excellent experience in the Intelligence Community already, look for a better and more challenging school. AMU has not provided me with any significant or challenging contributions with which to enhance my knowledge base. All classes are taught with dated material. If you are a hard worker and respect robust course reading and academic challenge, go some place else.

Zero support for transfer students
March 20, 2017
This college appears to have gone through a customer service revamping in the past 18 months. For students attempting to enter a program with any transfer credits, the registrar office will show line-by-line which classes will transfer for what. Once you enter the program, nearly none of the original classes will transfer. The transfer department says 2-3 weeks on their website for transfer credits to be awarded. After 6 weeks the credits were still not ...

BA Intelligence Studies
March 2, 2017
One of the really great things about AMU is that there is support for any of your concerns, whether it be financial aid, questions about courses or any other matter. I have actually called with a question and spoken to a dean. The instructors are well educated and well versed in the workforce. Intelligence Studies is a very precise field in that you must be able to prove through credible, scholarly sources why you think ...

Outstanding program
August 9, 2016
The Intelligence and Homeland Security programs at AMU are awesome! The environment is one of leaders in the field, and the opportunities as a result of being in the program have exceeded my expectations by a mile. I couldn't be happier. I couldn't recommend them higher, and I am already in the field. AMU is outstanding. Also, something that I found really different from other education environments, the professors work very hard to find opportunities ...

Nothing but BS - and I don't mean the degree initials
June 11, 2016
The teachers don't teach, grades are dependent on formatting not thought or content, forum posts are often copied and pasted by students with full credit and even replied to by the teachers with copy and paste showing they don't read the posts. The app is worthless (you can't post in the forums, you can't access most lesson information, etc, and the whole setup is confusing). The website with a computer is total crap for trying ...

Honest Review
August 7, 2015
Honest Review: I just finished my Bachelor of Arts in Intelligence Studies. I have traveled a great deal and went to 3 different brick and mortar schools (1x local community college, 1x major public university, and 1x major private university) before settling down with AMU. I was skeptical of an online education but it was necessary based upon my travels. Now I can honestly say that I DO NOT regret choosing AMU one bit. I ...

American Military University
August 6, 2015
I attended AMU for five years, completing a Bachelor's and a Master's degree through their programs. As a reservist, they treated me exceptionally well and furthered my education in a number of fields relating to International Affairs, diplomacy, conflict resolution, foreign intelligence services, terrorism, economics, counterintelligence, geography, and analysis. I would offer that if your intent is to work in government service (federal, state, or local) then AMU is an excellent choice. I have never ...

American Military University has far exceeded my expectations for an online education. Classes are challenging and the professors instruct from their experience and education - a winning combination, this results in real time, real world education.

I was hired because I had a relevant four-year degree. The fact that it was from an online university (AMU) made no difference. Education got me through the hiring door once I got out of the military.

AMU Graduates:
Please speak to whether your AMU graduate degree in Intel Studies DONE ANYTHING for you professionally.  
People like me - about to start the program next month - want to hear whether the $10K+ investment is worthwhile (more than we care about how pleasant you found the process).  
IN OTHER WORDS - Have you noticed, since you put AMU on your resume, that you're getting more attention from prospective employers? -promotions? -raises, etc?  Honestly.
Thanks for your help!

I am interested in any homeland security courses that you have to offer as well as intelligence studies. Do you offer any courses in counter narco-terrorism? I would have to take these courses on-line or in the Alexandria,VA/DC area. is not affiliated with American Military University in any way.
