Originally founded as American Military University (AMU) in 1991 by a former Marine Corps officer and instructor, James P. Etter, APUS focused on meeting the unique educational needs of the military-a very mobile population with extended, irregular schedules and limited financial resources. Over time, AMU expanded program offerings in response to demand by military students for post-military career preparation. With these new programs, AMU extended its outreach to the greater public service community, primarily police, fire, emergency management personnel and national security professionals. In 2002, the American Military University was reorganized into the current university system and began operating through two brands, AMU and American Public University (APU). The reorganization established an institutional brand-APU-that would appeal to non-military markets, including public service professionals such as teachers. APUS offers 74 associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.
