Students at the College of Fine Arts and Dietrich College, with an active interest in health, privacy, the home, gender, disability, care and spatial justice, are invited to apply.

Selected students will engage in conversation with the speakers and develop creative responses inspired by any aspect of the presentations that summarize or explore key ideas.

Possible formats could include (but are not limited to): Illustrations, graphics, or diagrams; musical or dramatic pieces; architectural or design vignettes or sketches; comics, poems or other literary explorations; and critically engaged written or spoken reviews.

We welcome questions and expressions of interest from graduate and undergraduate students from both colleges.

Carnegie Mellon University Washington Semester Program: Accepting Applications Now for Spring 2023

The Carnegie Mellon University Washington Semester Program (CMU/WSP), sponsored by the university's Institute for Politics and Strategy (IPS), is a semester-long program in which students live, intern, and take CMU classes in Washington, DC. Undergraduates from any course of study at the university may participate in the program. Students earn 48 units for the Carnegie Mellon University Washington Semester Program, interning about 24 hours per week in any sector or field of interest within Washington, D.C., while taking classes taught by Carnegie Mellon faculty.  

From embassies to nongovernmental organizations, think tanks to advocacy organizations, government agencies to congressional offices and consulting firms to media outlets, Washington, D.C., is the center for many political, international relations and public policy activities. Students in the program come into direct contact with political, business and community leaders and learn about the most pressing policy issues of the day.

Through this experiential learning program, CMU/WSP participants develop professional and networking skills, explore how coursework connects to the real world, learn to give and receive constructive feedback in the workplace and classroom and intentionally reflect on their learning and growth. Every CMU/WSP student is paired with a Washington, D.C.-based alumni mentor to share career advice and tips about life in DC. IPS also sponsors events and policy-oriented opportunities in Washington for students participating in the program to further enrich their experience and enhance their understanding of how Washington functions as a hub of international and policy decision making. 

Students should contact the CMU/WSP Senior Program Manager to discuss the specifics of the program and the IPS deputy director to discuss how the CMU/WSP may fit into their curriculum. Students who participate in the CMU/WSP may qualify for a minor in Politics and Public Policy

Applications are accepted on a rolling admission basis with a final deadline of Saturday, Oct. 1, for spring semester participation, and Wednesday, March 1, for fall semester participation. Early applications are highly encouraged.
