IDS 4710 The Internship Seminar (CHIP)

3 hours


Each week, interns gather (in the classroom in the CHIP building on Hill-510C St, NE) to discuss their internship and to extract its deeper meaning. The goal of the course is to expose students to generalizations about politics and related fields and how their internships are either confirming or challenging those generalizations. The readings for the course vary according to the internship placements of the students. Students are exposed to various research methodologies for understanding Washington politics and making connections to their internship. Guest speakers are used in this course.

Prerequisite(s): Acceptance into Capitol Hill Internship Program

Corequisite: IDS 4700 The Washington Experience (CHIP)
