    Washington Semester Program 

    Are you interested in attending the Washington Semester Program for Fall 2014? For Hamline undergraduate students, applications are due October 18 by 5 p.m. See below for details.

    Hamline’s Political Science Department enjoys a partnership with American University’s Washington Semester Program. Every year, Hamline students apply to be considered for this program. Selected students spend Fall or Spring semester in Washington, DC engaged in specialized coursework, research, and an internship.

    Students are able to choose from a variety of exciting programs: American Politics, Economic Policy, Foreign Policy, International Business and Trade, International Environment and Development, International Law and Organizations, Israel Studies, Journalism, Justice, Peace and Conflict Resolution, Public Law, and Transforming Communities. Some of these programs include study abroad opportunities. For more information, please visit the Washington Semester website.

    Because of our partnership with American University, coursework easily transfers to Hamline, and Hamline financial support can help to defray the cost of attending the Washington Semester Program. Also, American University offers competitive scholarships to cover additional expenses.

    If you have any questions or would like to discuss the program, contact faculty representative Binnur Ozkececi-Taner at bozkececitaner01@hamline.edu.
