Spring Break 2018 Applications Are Now Open!
The DC Spring Break Seminar provides opportunities for students wanting to experience Washington, DC in a structured and guided way while earning W&M academic credit.
The W&M DC Spring Break Seminar is William & Mary's newest Study in DC opportunity. Starting with the inaugural class in March 2017, the DC Spring Break Seminar allows enrolled students to earn 3 W&M credits through an accelerated seminar-style course that involves networking with experts and alums through guest lectures and site visits.
The 2018 DC Spring Break Seminars will be:
- Public Health: Health Equity, Sustainability, and Well-Being in a Global Age (3-credits)
- Taught by Professor Alison Scott
- The Law and Politics of Capital Punishment (3-credits)
- Taught by Professor Christine Nemacheck and Meghan Shapiro, Capital Defense Attorney
- Additional course fee applies
Who can apply?
The DC Spring Break Seminar is open to all currently enrolled W&M students (undergraduate and graduate students alike)! Seminar students engage in classroom and hands-on learning, and experience the dynamic institutions of the Washington, DC area firsthand.
Enrolled students will be taking a 3-credit course in the spring semester, part of their overall spring course load. Spring semester overloads will not automatically be granted by the Dean of Students Office. We recommend students register for a maximum of 15 other credits to leave room for this course.
Students who wish to take more than 18 credits total will need to apply to the Dean of Students Office in January of the spring semester for approval
