D.C. Capital Semester: International Affairs & Public Policy Track Spring Internship Early Admission Deadline
Capital Semester will give you an insider’s view of Washington, the city where news and history is made every day. Get international affairs experience without leaving the country and interact with leaders making public policy. Spend a semester in the nation’s capital with students from around the country and world who are all passionate about public policy issues and making an impact on the world. The intensive schedule is designed to maximize your time in Washington by combining learning in the classroom with practical internship experience.
Employers are looking for recent graduates with experience, and the best way to stand out after graduation is to complete an internship and make connections now. In fact, employers give twice as much weight to graduates' work experience as to their academic credentials, according to a 2012 survey from the Chronicle of Higher Education as noted in a November 13, 2014 article in the Wall Street Journal. When you picture your future, do you see yourself on writing legislation, going to law school, working as a Foreign Service officer or perhaps researching public and international policy issues? If so, this is the program for you.
