When is the American Studies Program Offered?
Fall & Spring Semesters
Founded in 1976, the American Studies Program has served hundreds of students as a "Washington, D.C., campus." ASP uses Washington as a stimulating educational laboratory where collegians gain hands-on experience with an internship in their chosen field and explore pressing national and international issues in public policy seminars that are issue-oriented, interdisciplinary and led by ASP faculty and Washington professionals. Internships are tailored to fit students' talents and aspirations, and are available in a wide range of fields. ASP bridges classroom and marketplace, combining biblical reflections, policy analysis and real-world experience. Students are exposed to on-the-job learning that helps them build for their future and gain perspective on the calling of God for their lives. They are challenged in a rigorous course of study to discover for themselves the meaning of Christ's lordship in putting their beliefs into practice. The aim of the program is to help Council schools prepare their students to live faithfully in contemporary society as followers of Christ. Participating students may earn 16 semester hours of credit.
