The Capital Semester seeks well-rounded students who are successful in their academic pursuits as well as partaking in a full range of co-curricular activities. Capital Semester offers internships at various nonprofit organizations during fall and spring semester along with summer institutes for students looking to intern at nonprofit organizations in the DC area during the summer while earning 12 semester credits.
Students can also take part in career development activities and exclusive lectures and briefings at the White House Complex, State Department and U.S. House of Representatives that are offered by policy experts and the managers of nonprofit organizations. Housing is offered at Georgetown and all students are encouraged to accept program housing instead of seeking their own accommodations.
