About

International Affairs - Comparative and Regional Studies from American University Washington DC prepares students to be regional experts who understand key global issues through comparative analysis across regions and countries.  

Overview

International Affairs - Comparative and Regional Studies from American University Washington DC combines study of the comparative method with regional expertise. In this way, CRS regional concentrations serve as laboratories for knowledge, allowing students to draw lessons from experiences within a region to inform their understanding of the local context and, importantly, of how and why the local context shapes outcomes of global interest.

CRS offers students an innovative program of study designed to create informed and analytically-oriented global leaders through traditional academic study, methodological training, skills institutes, and policy practica. Our dual focus—with students choosing one regional and one thematic concentration—provides a two-pronged approach to the study of international affairs.
