Washington, D.C.

Though best known as the United States capital, Washington, D.C. is, a global gathering place that hosts over 175 foreign embassies, as well as the headquarters of many international organizations, trade unions, and nonprofit organizations. Students of every major are drawn to this picturesque location at the convergence of the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, and know it as a city of austere monuments, grandiose historic structures, and of course the delicate cherry blossoms that blanket the city each spring.

Students in the Washington, D.C. program reside at the heart of the nation's capital only three blocks from the White House, and gain highly personalized access to prominent public officials, scholars, activists, journalists, and diplomats. At the forefront of global symposia, seminars, conferences, and cultural exchanges, students have exposure to what is happening daily in every corner of the world.
