Capitol Hill Internship Program
Nebraska Wesleyan University’s Capitol Hill Internship Program (CHIP) offers students the experience of living, interning, and studying in the heart of Washington, D.C. The public-affairs focused program provides students of any major with a total Washington experience through an academically rigorous program with a focus on experiential learning. In addition to interning in either government or non-governmental offices, students will discover the role of government in fields including law, the media, health care, and the arts and sciences. Challenging seminars and courses that are tailored to enrich students’ internship experiences are an integral part of the internship program.
Applicants must have a 3.00 GPA, be a junior or senior [or second semester sophomore with special consideration], and have taken PolSc 1 or it’s equivalent.
Courses offered in the fall and spring semesters are:
- PolSc 180 The Washington Experience (9 hrs.)
- PolSc 181 The Internship Seminar (3 hrs.)
- PolSc 190 Selected Topics-various topics when approved (3 hrs.)
