Educational Philosophy of National American University

NAU stresses academic excellence. Its programs emphasize the importance of thinking rationally, communicating effectively, acting purposefully, and dealing effectively with others and with the environment. The curriculum is designed to enable students to acquire a breadth as well as a depth of knowledge.

NAU faculty members are committed to excellence in the classroom and to the challenge of nurturing the intellectual growth of students. Additionally, because of our commitment to a collegiate environment of caring, concern, and professional service, students at NAU have the opportunity to establish close personal and professional relationships with their professors, graduate advisors, admissions advisors, and financial service representatives.
