OFF-CAMPUS STUDY PROGRAM ENRICHES OPPORTUNITIES
The opportunity to study off-campus continues to be a vibrant hallmark of a CMC education. Over the past five years, participation by our students in the international educational experience is stronger than ever, with opportunities to study in 43 nations - from Botswana to the United Kingdom. Consistent with our mission to prepare future leaders, CMC's Washington Program remains a key element of the total educational experience for many of our students. Now in its 33rd year and considered an "elder statesman" among educational opportunities in our nation's capital, the Washington Program combines full-time internships with classes designed to complement serious discussion of contemporary political issues. The Program places our students squarely in the center of the political and government experience, with internships in the U.S. Department of State, the White House, legislature and congressional offices, advocacy groups, foreign policy institutes and think-tanks, ranging from the United Nations Development Program, to the Kennedy Center.
