Students work four full days a week in their internship offices, and on Friday attend class and lectures. Wednesday evenings are also set aside for class activities. The Washington Politics course taught by Professor Connelly provides the necessary background and complements the students' office experience.
The Washington Term Program aims to enlarge students' understanding of national politics and governance. Combining the practical experience of a Washington internship with academic study, it affords deeper insight into the processes and problems of government at the national level.
