The first step toward building the life you choose


fields of study

Find your passion. You hear that a lot because it's kind of true. Building the life you choose, in part, means finding work that you really want to get to every day; work that inspires you. Work that turns into a career.

Maybe you know already that you want to be a nurse. Or maybe you have no idea what you want to do. Either way, we can help you find the great passion that becomes your career and give you the knowledge and experience you need to make the most of it.

Within AUM’s five colleges — the Colleges of Business, Education, Arts and Sciences, Nursing and Health Sciences, and Sciences — you will find more than 90 fields of study in bachelor's, master's and doctoral programs. Our schedule is flexible, as well, to fit your life. Our classes are offered days, nights and weekends, as well as online

You will be challenged, but you are not in it alone                                                                     

The programs we offer are academically challenging, meaning you’ll find the rigor and quality that you would expect in a private college. AUM is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and our programs consistently rank among the best in the state.

Yes, college at AUM is challenging, and you’ll work harder than maybe you ever have. But one thing we know, it's only when we're challenged that we grow, that we find out what we're capable of. Besides, we are right there with you, giving you all of the help and resources you need to be successful. At AUM, your classes are small (on average 16:1 student-to-teacher ratio) so that you get more attention from your professors. From your first days on campus, to the Learning Center/Instructional Lab, to your professional advisor — you’ll find everything you need to ensure that your own effort is rewarded.
