American University Washington Semester Program

American University in D.C. offers a Washington Semester Program for fall, spring and summer terms.

The program focuses on three key ingredients to help your students develop the skills and contacts to find their chosen career.

First, the program offers a seminar course that takes the students around Washington to talk to more than 30 innovators who describe how the profession is changing and where they might fit in.  Speakers include the Washington Post’s managing editor for digital news, and NBC’s Washington bureau chief, as well as reporters and editors at USA Today, Slate and BuzzFeed. We also talk to key communicators at advocacy groups, in political communication and at PR agencies.

 Second, students are sent all over Washington to report on stories and interview sources under the tutelage of an experienced news writer and author.

 And third, the program helps students find professional internships.  Just in the past year, our students have worked at NBC, ABC-7, the Columbus Dispatch Washington Bureau, the Smithsonian Channel, PolitiFact, and an assortment of communications offices both on and off Capitol Hill.  As I am sure you well know, landing a job these days requires professional internships and a network of contacts.  That’s our specialty, and my alumni Facebook page attests to the accomplishments of our past students.
