If professional development is on your to-do list for 2017, this holiday season is the perfect opportunity to sign up for classes and continue your educational journey. American Public University (APU) offers more than 200 degrees and certificate programs for adult learners. Our associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs are designed to provide you with career-relevant education to help you prepare for the demands of your next career.
In addition, our graduate and undergraduate certificate programs at APU offer you the opportunity to improve your knowledge in a specialty area. These classes are useful if you just want additional education for the demands of your current career.
Over 200 Academic Programs Available
Whatever career field you’re in, we may have an academic program to suit your needs. We offer courses in both non-technical and technical fields, including:
- Business administration, accounting and management
- Criminal justice, intelligence and homeland security
- Cybersecurity, IT project management and environmental science
- Transportation and logistics management

Transfer Your Credits or Convert Your Experience to Academic Credit
Do you have credits earned from another accredited university? You may be able to save time and money by transferring your credits. We provide flexible transfer credit evaluation (TCE) services to help you receive credit for prior learning or professional experience.
Your life experience may also apply toward a degree or certificate. With our Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) program, you could earn credit for volunteer work or training you received on your job. You may also qualify for academic credit from business ownership, independent study, travel or other types of experience.
Asynchronous Classes Fit into Your Life’s Demands
At APU we’ve been educating adult learners for decades and know that taking classes, caring for family members and working full-time is challenging for our students. Our 100% online classes start monthly and last from 8 to 16 weeks. You can take classes from your any location and study at times that fit your schedule, from a computer with Internet access.
