The State of Alabama established Auburn University at Montgomery in 1967 at the request of the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce on behalf of local and state leaders. AUM provides excellent academic programs while supporting the function of local, state and regional government – located just seven miles east of the state capitol.
Today, AUM offers more than 90 areas of study, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, including unique programs in Geographic Information Systems, Hospitality and Tourism, Homeland Security, and Cybersystems and Information Security. The university is organized into five academic units: the College of Business, College of Education, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Nursing and Health Sciences, and College of Public Policy and Justice. Each offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in traditional, online and hybrid formats, with courses offered in the day, evening, and on weekends.
Auburn Montgomery is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
