The Washington Semester program is a great way to get involved in the excitement of our nation’s capital. Students who participate in the Washington Semester at American University take classes in a particular subject area, such as foreign policy or journalism, three times a week, and intern two days a week. Students can earn up to 15 or 16 credits.

The Washington Semester offers many different programs including: American politics, foreign policy, international business and trade, journalism and justice. Students can intern anywhere from the White House and Paine Webber to the World Bank and NBC News.

Because UST is affiliated with the Washington Semester program, students who have financial aid packages may apply these to the Washington Semester program in most cases.

Interested students should attend the information meeting from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30, in Room 210, O’Shaughnessy Educational Center.
