Spend a semester in our nation’s capital
Norwich University maintains an institutional affiliation with The Washington Semester Program (WSP), one of the oldest, most prestigious and well-known experiential education programs in the world.
At WSP, you will learn by doing, hearing, speaking, seeing and asking questions out in the real world. It will help jumpstart your career and give you a taste of professional life at the bustling pace of the capital city.
Each semester includes a seminar, internship and research project or elective class. No two weeks are the same: You’ll race between internships, meetings with high-level professionals, study in the Library of Congress, or perhaps a session in the U.S. Senate.
WSP offers nine unique and intensive programs: American Politics; Islam and World Affairs; Foreign Policy; Global Economics and Business; International Law and Organizations; Journalism; Justice and Law; Peace and Conflict Resolution; and Transforming Communities.
How it Works
Participants spend a semester in Washington, D.C., in a full-credit program offered through American University. They earn 12 to 16 American University credits (depending on program choice) that transfer back to Norwich.
