The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars is pleased to offer the courses described in this Course Guide for the Spring 2018 Academic Internship Program.
The Washington Center aims to provide its students with an integrated work and academic experience, and the courses offered by The Washington Center are an integral part of that overall learning experience. These courses provide you with a chance to step back from your daily work and to reflect through an academic lens on broader aspects of what goes on around you as you experience Washington, D.C. These courses may supplement the courses offered at your home institution or offer a unique opportunity to pursue a specific interest not available on your campus.
It is our goal to offer academic courses that are grounded in traditional disciplines, yet are taught within the context of the wide array of resources available in Washington, D.C. All of these courses aim at student learning outcomes consistent with the awarding of at least three semester credit hours.
