If an internship seems out of the question, think about participating in a 1-2 week seminar!
In addition to an internship, our students have the opportunity to attend 1-2 week seminars in Washington, D.C. that are held in January & May and cover various topics. The January seminars are popular seminars and are usually of a political nature.
Presidential Seminars: During election years the most interesting and the most popular seminars are the Presidential Convention Seminar Series. The first seminar is held in January and is usually entitled “Race to the Presidency”, then the attendance at the actual Presidential Conventions held in August in various cities, followed-up by the Inauguration Seminar the following January, where the students actually attend the Inauguration Ceremonies.
Camp David III Seminar: This seminar followed in the footsteps of Camp David I which produced
the 1979 Israeli-Egyptian peace accord, and the failed Camp David II summit of 2000 between Israel and the Palestinians. During this seminar, students learn why national and ethnic conflicts arise and the strategies used to resolve them. This continues to be one of the most popular seminars!
