Want college credit for a Washington internship? Interested in health or
environmental policy? Intrigued by the idea of a career in public
service? Apply now to the Federal Semester Program for 2013-2014!
In this selective year-long program, students take a fall-semester seminar
in one of four policy-focused concentrations: Federal Health Policy,
Energy/Environmental Policy, Foreign Policy, and Homeland Security Policy.
They then work a spring-semester internship in federal agencies,
congressional offices, think-tanks, non-profits, and other policy-related
organizations. Federal Semester students have interned in such offices as
the National Institutes of Health, the Environmental Protection Agency,
the Center for Disease Control, Genetic Alliance, the Department of
Energy, Environment America, and many, many more. Year-round activities
include trips to Capitol Hill and federal agencies, professional
development workshops, and conversations with policymakers.
