Semester in Washington

Location: Washington, DC

The Semester in Washington Program offers students a life-changing and invaluable experience learning, living, and interning in Washington, D.C. An integral part of the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy’s Department of Political Science, the program is designed to be both a capstone and a launching pad. While exploring the nation’s capital, you will:

  • Meet political leaders
  • Get an inside view of government
  • Develop the tools you will need to launch a successful career in any field
  • Earn 15 credits

You will do all this while taking small seminars and working closely with a faculty member on work that will grow out of your own interests. The Semester in Washington is offered in the spring semester for UAlbany students in any major with junior or senior standing.

Applications are accepted in the fall and spring for the following two semesters. See Handshake for current application and timeline.
