American National University was founded in 1886 in Roanoke, Virginia as an innovator in education, bringing practical, career-focused education to the classroom. Today, the university network includes multiple campuses, the School of Professional Development, the English Language Institute, and a wide range of diverse academic programs. Our academic programs allow students to choose the education level that best suits their career goals, in a timeframe that works for them. Students can choose from associate's, bachelor's or Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree programs.
American National University's English Language Institute offers English as a Second Language (ESL) programs for international students whose native language is not English that want to learn or improve their English language skills, and may be interested in gaining entrance to higher education institutions in the United States. Our programs meet the professional standards in the field of ESL, and National College holds institutional membership in the American International Recruitment Council (AIRC).
