American Studies Program

Washington DC

Program Overview
The American Studies Program, sponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), is designed for juniors and seniors with a wide range of academic majors and vocational interests. Students are involved in the American Studies Program for periods of three or four months. The internship/seminar opportunity is available starting in September and in January.

The American Studies Program was created to provide field experience and study opportunities in Washington, D.C., for diverse majors and personal interests. The program is based on the principle of integrating faith, learning, and living through both a real-life work experience and a study program. Students spend their time in Washington serving as interns, participating in a contemporary, issues-oriented seminar program, and living in a small Christian community. Internships are available in congressional offices, social service agencies, think tanks, cultural institutions, and many other organizations. Further information and application forms are available from the registrar.
