The College has
established a “study-away semester in Washington, DC, held every other
fall semester. The program is in partnership with The Washington Center
for Internships and Academic Semesters (TWC), a nonprofit, nonpartisan
educational organization. Students participating in the program earn
four Hendrix academic credits by completing: 1) a substantive internship
with an organization of interest within the government, nonprofit, or
private sector; 2) a leadership forum which includes a distinguished
speakers series, civic engagement projects, and public policy dialogues;
3) a TWC elective course selected from such areas as American politics,
public policy and administration, business management,
communications, international affairs and foreign policy, law and
criminal justice, leadership, and science and technology; 4) a
place-based, experiential learning course taught by a Hendrix professor
and entitled, A Capital Odyssey: Living and Learning in Washington, DC.
Additionally, student participants are eligible to earn two Odyssey
credits (PL and SP).
A summer program at TWC is also available, through which students earn two Hendrix academic and one Odyssey credits.
