American International College is a private, co-educational institution located in the geographic center of Springfield, Massachusetts. The College offers undergraduate and graduate programs, including a doctorate in education. American International College is dedicated to learning. Our mission is to provide a quality, transforming education to a diverse body of undergraduate and graduate students for life long leadership and success in a global environment. The student body of the College is drawn principally from the northeast region of the United States, however, students do, as throughout the College's 119 year history, attend from other states and from countries throughout the world. It is our fundamental philosophic conviction that the primary function of our College is to promote a learning centered process in which our students are engaged; that the curriculum should be designed to serve that function; and that all other activities, including the co-curricular and athletic programs, should be consistent with that primary function.
