Educational Philosophy of National American University
National American University 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. The general education core classes emphasize broad knowledge in several areas, including communications, computers, the humanities, science, mathematics, and the behavioral and social sciences. Specialization in a major field gives students the opportunity to develop depth of knowledge as they pursue goals consistent with their individual interests, skills, and abilities.
National American University 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 National American University have the opportunity to establish close personal and professional relationships with their instructors.
