    School Overview

    Since 1873, Spring Arbor University has taken a unique approach in its interaction with and education of students. Though an academic institution, SAU is not solely focused on knowledge acquisition. In other words, SAU does not believe that knowledge and skill acquisition comprise the totality of an educated person. Rather, the institution is deeply invested in transforming students into becoming people of wisdom, which is achieved when a student is pushed beyond knowledge acquisition into knowledge application.

    Enjoy a relevant education with a real-life application of knowledge.

    One of the ways SAU delivers a relevant education is through the real-life application of knowledge. As a student of a master’s or bachelor’s degree programs, absorbing knowledge is the first step. Success lies in the direct implementation of knowledge to solve real-world challenges. SAU remains on constant alert to adapt online courses to new trends. This way, you learn not only the solid foundations of subject matter, but also the latest implementation strategies needed in this rapidly changing world.

    Take advantage of unparalleled support every step of the way.

    Spring Arbor University understands the importance of having a support network. In addition to instructors, staff and peers who know exactly what it’s like to be an adult online learner, you will be assigned your own Student Success Coach who will work with you on work-life balance, personal and professional development, career goals and more.
