Why this Program?

William & Mary is bringing its commitment to academic excellence and dedication to public service to the DC Semester Program. Although more than 50 schools run programs for undergraduate students in Washington, William & Mary's is unique. Students take classes with a W&M professor, live in a luxury apartment, and earn credit for working in an internship at an organization whose mission is tied directly to the theme of the semester. And like few other programs, course topics change from semester to semester, allowing professors to teach their expertise and students from a wide range of disciplines to participate. Financial Assistance is available for this program.
