Special Programs


Washington Semester Program

The University offers semester-long internship programs in cooperation with the American University in Washington, DC. These programs combine academic courses with internship placements in legislative, executive, and interest-group offices in the nation's capitol. Students sometimes do a Washington internship semester as an alternative to study abroad. The academic requirements for participation are the same as those for study abroad (i.e., a 3.2 GPA overall and in the major).


Students interested in the Washington Semester program should schedule an appointment with the Office of International Programs in Hovey House.
