What are some colleges similar to American University in terms of campus vibe and programs?

Hey everyone! I'm really into the whole vibe and the programs at American University, but I wanna expand my college search. Does anyone have suggestions for schools that have a similar atmosphere and strong international relations or political science programs?

Hey there! It's great to hear that you've pinpointed what you like about American University. Finding schools with a similar 'vibe' can be a bit subjective, but I can definitely point you towards some institutions known for their strong programs in international relations and political science, as well as their vibrant campus life.

George Washington University and Georgetown University, both located in Washington, D.C., are renowned for their engagement with politics and international affairs, just like American University. Additionally, consider looking at Tufts University near Boston, especially their Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy for graduate studies. For an intimate campus setting with a focus on internationalism, Middlebury College in Vermont could also be a good match. Another one is the School of International Service at American University, which has a strong international relations program similar to others I mentioned.

Remember, visiting the campuses, if possible, is a great way to get a feel for the place and see if it matches the 'vibe' you're looking for. And don't forget to check out each college's course offerings and extracurricular opportunities in international relations or political science to ensure they align with your interests. Good luck with your search!
