Masters In Military History
September 29, 2016
It was not very easy to find an online University that offered a Master's Degree in Military History, so my choices were limited when I decided on American Public University. However, I am halfway through my degree program, and am pleased to report that I am more than satisfied with my experience here. Many of the classes are either 8 wks or 16wk long, but cover the same material. I have found that I enjoy ...

Not the best, but good bang for the buck
July 20, 2015
I completed a MA in Military Studies between 2010 and 2014. I chose AMU because of a decent reputation among peers, low cost and flexibility. The flexibility was a must since my initial classes were accomplished while deployed. The professors were a mixed bag between those who treated the class as an afterthought for whatever was going on in their lives and those who were genuinely excellent and thought-provoking. The quality of the education obviously ...

Hard work but worth it
July 9, 2015
As a teacher, I had always told my students to recognize their talents and take them as far as they can go. When it was pointed out to me that my talent was scholastic ability and I had only a bachelors degree, I investigated several schools that offered Masters programs. I chose AMU because of my interest in the Civil War and because of the online program. I had always been an excellent student without ...

AMU's Military Studies Program
December 7, 2014
After retiring from the Air Force, I used my remaining VA education benefits to complete a second master's degree, this on in Military Studies. All of the professors were outstanding. Access to the virtual classroom was great. The classroom platform was relatively to learn to use and maneuver around. The assignments were fair and very educational. Tech support was always responsive and effective. Overall, a great educational experience! Highly recommend to anyone interested in a ...

Top Rated MA in Unconventional Warfare
March 25, 2013
I first began my MA in Unconventional Warfare in 2002 and soon was applying what I was learning in real world operations for OIF 2003-04. The professors I had taught me to write effectively and gave me analytical skills that Fort Hauchuca couldn't. The Defense industry knows about AMU/APUS and the degrees earned there are taken seriously. I did a world of good because of my masters degree, saved lives, and disrupted insurgent activities because ...

Generally positive
November 7, 2012
I am about half way through this program. Initially, the courses were 16 weeks in length which was a fantastic pace. However, a few months ago the courses were cut to 8 weeks in length which significantly reduced the amount of information that can be gleaned from the program. The plus side is that it makes it easier to get the program done sooner but if you are interested in learning, this was a move ...

The AMU is a very unique college for all students thinking of pursuing their Education. The combination of technology and online support from the faculty place the student firmly in charge of their time management and ultimate progress through the course. I have no hesitation in urging prospective students to review the ever expanding number of courses. Peter G Gibbons (Class of '06) Dublin Ireland.

This was my second matriculation; my first was at a traditional "brick and mortar" in-residence institution.  My interaction with AMU professors--many of whom were "names" in the class topic--was the highest I'd ever experienced.  I'm still in contact with them 15 years later!  While the workload could be quite heavy, I learned so much and felt my mastery of the material solidly increase.  I often tell people that my distance education masters degree program at AMU felt far more rewarding than my first program in residence.  Even after so many years, I still feel that way.

I am a senior naval officer who was graduated with a Master of Arts in Military Studies in 1995.  Not only was my program intellectually challenging and rewarding, it was also instrumental in my promotion to Captain (0-6).

Excellent Faculty and Curriculum

I am civilian working in the aerospace industry.  I am wrapping up my last class and will prepare for the comprehensive exam next month.  I found the learning experience provided by AMU to be very well structured.  My professors were all excellent and I learned a great deal from both the course material as well as their feedback to my work and the class.  The online format was very flexible and conducive to the working student.  While I am glad to be at the end of the line for my Masters, I am approaching it with some regret because I truly enjoyed the ride.  The good news is that as an alumnus, I will still have access to their online library! is not affiliated with American Military University in any way.
