Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

Study Abroad + Options
The city of Dubrovnik is recognized throughout the world for its beauty, but its history is also extremely unique. It provides an ideal setting to study diplomacy, international relations, trade, the fall and rise of civilizations, and art.
API students will study abroad in Dubrovnik at Libertas International University. Libertas International University is the first private university in Croatia, ideally situated along the Adriatic Sea and located within the ancient city walls of Dubrovnik. Courses at Libertas focus on international relations, diplomacy, peace and conflict studies, and are intimate and immersive in nature. Libertas attracts first-rate faculty from across the world, and all of its professors have served as active practitioners in their chosen field: they represent a group comprised of former ambassadors, ministers, economists, CEOs, artistic directors, and other business and political leaders. This combination of academic prestige and real-world experience will ensure that Libertas students are exposed to programs and courses that balance the theoretical with the practical.
“From studying abroad before in Croatia and from hearing about other students' experiences in other locations, the API Dubrovnik program is probably one of the most unique opportunities for study abroad. I wouldn't have traded it for the world, and I still can't believe how lucky I was to have had spent four months in such a wonderful location with the best people I could imagine."
API students in Dubrovnik have the opportunity to participate in internships with local non-profits such as the Bonsai Civil Society Development Association and news organizations like the Dubrovnik Times
