The upcoming presidential nomination conventions provide exceptional opportunities for learning. Students who are nominated will participate in the Democratic and Republican National Convention Academic Seminars, which remain the only national academic programs of their scope, size and visibility.
Combining formal instruction, guest lectures, panels, tours, site visits, and field work assignments, the program gives students the opportunity to experience the convention from behind the scenes, and to witness democracy in action at both the grassroots and national levels.
