Typical Schedule in DC


Students engage with Senator Tammy Duckworth

You will have a busy and exciting semester! Students intern full-time, four days a week during the hours that their internship dictates, usually 9:00 to 6:00. Two nights a week, you will have class, from 6:30 to 9:00 or 7:00 to 9:30.  On Fridays, the Core Internship Seminar takes place from 10:00 to 3:00. You won’t be in the classroom for five hours straight: there will be guest speakers and group outings.
