American Military University is dedicated to educating those who serve. We value our roots in the military and extend that same dedication to those who serve and protect our nation as public safety professionals in law enforcement, emergency response, fire services, homeland security, and intelligence.
At AMU, we know you set the bar high, expect to work hard and are looking for a university that is equally invested in your success. Our professors bring you their first-hand field expertise and real-world perspective. Plus, our online programs are designed to meet the needs of working adults with unpredictable schedules, meaning you can complete your education around your busy life.
The strength of our program relies on established partnerships with public safety organizations and agencies around the nation. These partnerships ensure our courses deliver relevant and current information to prepare graduates for leadership positions within public safety agencies.
