For students participating in the University of Notre Dame’s Washington Program, the semester studying in our nation’s capital offers opportunities to combine coursework with internships in a range of areas, from Congress and advocacy groups to media and cultural institutions.
This semester, Notre Dame Washington Program students have visited the White House, the Capitol, the State Department, the Pentagon and the United States Institute of Peace (USIP), as part of their core seminar. Notre Dame’s President Emeritus, Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., served on the board of directors at USIP and a hall that houses the Institute’s Religion and Peacemaking Center was named after Father Hesburgh in 2010.
