American Studies Program
The American Studies Program is designed for juniors and seniors with a wide range of academic majors and vocational interests. The program is offered both fall and spring semesters each year. Sixteen hours are earned in the program; eight are classroom work in domestic and foreign policy analysis from a Christian point of view; and eight are in an internship in one of more than 500 internship opportunities available to Council students. Because of its unique location in the nation's capital, this ''Washington Campus'' is viewed as one way of challenging students to consider the meaning of proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ in all areas of life, including career choices, public policy issues, and personal relationships. This program is administered by the Department of History and Political Science. Credit may apply to majors in History, Political Science, Public Policy, and Social Sciences, or toward general education credit for other majors.
