Students in the Washington Program spend either the fall or spring semester in our nation's capital working at a full-time internship, taking two seminar courses and conducting an Independent Research Project. Outside of work and academics, the Director of the Program organizes guest speakers with prominent political figures, excursions both in and outside of Washington, private tours of locations such as the Supreme Court or the Pentagon, and facilitates learning opportunities through visit(s) to think tanks or the National Library.
