Program Description:
There is no better way to learn about the intricacies of U.S. government and politics and their impact on the world than to spend a semester in Washington, D.C. While our nation's capital is best known for politics, it is also a leading hub for international exchange, arts, culture, history, and news media.

Students on the Washington Program spend either the fall or spring semester in the nation's capital working at a full-time internship, taking three classes, and meeting with prominent political figures. Students work at a diverse array of organizations, such as the Sierra Club, the Environmental Protection Agency, the White House, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, CNN, the Smithsonian, the Senate Budget Committee, and Amnesty International.

A comprehensive link of Washington D.C. organizations offering internships can be found at Professor of Politics, Jack Pitney's website.
