Rising high school juniors and seniors enroll in a rigorous three-credit college course in international relations that blends a week of online learning with two weeks of traditional on-campus classes. This hybrid format allows students to sample the distinct features of each learning platform. Students choose from one of these courses taught by AU faculty: (1) Worlds Apart, Worlds Together: Conflict, Culture, and Cooperation or (2) Diplomacy and Dictators: U.S. Foreign Policy in an Uncertain World. Students study online for the first week of the program and then attend traditional classes on campus for the second two weeks. Students attend class from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., followed by lunch and afternoon activities, including site visits to Washington institutions (such as the State Department, Pentagon, and embassies), guest speakers, Model U.N.-style simulations, and college skills-building workshops taught by AU staff. Commuting students are invited to attend all afternoon and evening activities. Upon their return home, students will have an additional week to submit a final paper or project.
