AU MSOD Program

Offered by our top-ranked School of Public Affairs, the AU MSOD blends a rigorous academic curriculum with an experiential learning component. The MSOD classroom is a dynamic, challenging space, where students learn from scholar-practitioners, as well as from each other.

It takes about 18 months to complete the 11-course curriculum. To accommodate working professionals, most courses meet on AU's northwest DC campus for two three-day weekends a month apart. Students complete the curriculum as members of a cohort, which becomes a powerful base for current learning and future professional relationships. The coursework addresses foundations and skills essential to 21st century OD practice, and ends with a series of fieldwork activities. Beyond the residential “launch” of the cohort learning community, there are two residential sessions for intensive learning: use of self in professional practice, and international OD fieldwork. The International Residency takes place in Johannesburg, South Africa, and is one of the most innovative and powerful programs for learning about the cultural competence and consulting skills needed for international OD work. In addition, all students complete a supervised practicum for reflective practice of OD in a full-cycle client engagement.

Admissions is rolling. For more information about the AU MSOD, to learn about our top-tier MSOD faculty, or to apply for admission, visit american.edu/msod  or contact (202) 885-6206. We look forward to meeting you at one of our information sessions or on a campus visit soon.
