The Citadel in D.C. summer program is a semester-long domestic program in Washington, D.C. with an internship component for Political Science and Intelligence and Security Studies majors. Students live in DC at Washington Intern Student Housing, intern at various locations around the city and take an interdisciplinary academic course. Students will take a full course load of INTL courses that will allow for PSCI course substitutions as necessary to fulfill the student’s course requirements.
The courses in this program are taught in-person by a Citadel professor and allow students the opportunity to experience D.C. as their classroom. Students may earn up to 15 academic credits during the semester; 9 credits of academic courses; 3 credit hours towards an internship; option to take 3 additional hours of coursework through a remote online course offered at the Citadel.
