Politics, Government, and Law majors are encouraged to study abroad or away for a semester, a year, or another time period that meets their curricular and personal needs. This experience provides students the opportunity to explore new places and cultures. For example, students can study at a foreign university, intern with the Parliaments of the United Kingdom or Ireland, attend American University while interning in Washington D.C., or participate in a global field study course that combines traditional course work with a seven-to-twelve day overseas travel component.
Politics, Government, and Law majors studying abroad for a semester or a year typically should do so during the summer, sophomore or junior years. All students must complete their senior year on-campus due to the year-long senior thesis course requirements.
