Learning Opportunities

Internships, foreign study, off-campus study, and other special opportunities are available to qualified students. The student's academic record and objectives will be taken into account in considering the proposed program, which must be approved in advance by the Committee on Academic Procedure.

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.
