Information session for Washington Center internships Thursday

Students who dream of living and working in the nation's capital can receive information about the Washington Center's internship and academic seminar programs on Thursday.

The information session is being hosted by the Department of Political Science and Public Administration, but is opened to all students. The session will be in Anspach Hall Room 155 from 5-6 p.m.

The Washington Center has helped 50,000 students around the world start their careers.

Students selected by the Washington Center can receive internships with prestigious organizations including the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Library of Congress, United Way of America, Save the Children and Smithsonian Institute.

Academic seminars are composed of three elements: speakers, site visits and small group sessions. The two seminars available in May 2015 are on the topics of national security and global changes.

Students who are interested in the program, but cannot attend the session should contact Joyce Baugh, political science professor, at or by phone at 989-774-3475.
