Study Public Policy in the Nation’s Capital

The Honors Seminar on Public Policy and Global Affairs provides a unique “study abroad” experience in our nation’s capital. The program includes internships with non-profit and governmental organizations and weekly seminars that allow students to engage directly with leaders that influence domestic and international affairs. Students are exposed to a range of public policies that influence global economic prosperity, national security, and America's role in the broader international community.

Over the past four months, I grew as a writer and a professional. I had the chance to meet with dozens of professionals working in my field of interest and gained some valuable insight into potential career paths. Applying to the Honors Seminar was the best decision of my college career.
