Abstract:

During the fall 2006 semester, I acted as the Faculty Director of the College of William & Mary’s inaugural Semester in Washington DC Program. In this paper, I discuss and analyze the development and implementation of this new program, which is distinct from many Washington DC internship programs in that it has a unique thematic focus for each semester. That is, each semester since its inception, the program has focused on a different theme and all aspects of the program (student internships, courses, and outside speakers and visits) are directed toward that theme.

Here I aim to discuss this integrated course/internship program’s development and analyze the experience through the lens of both the participating faculty members, as well as student participants. In doing so, I conduct an overview of the different types of Washington DC internship programs currently offered by colleges and universities and assess the degree to which an integrated program provides advantages for students and program faculty. This research will provide further insight into the educational and career development value of such an integrated learning experience.
