Washington Semester

Washington Semester

LSUS American Studies offered the first independent Washington semester at a public college/university in the South, and today it is the least expensive one in the nation. Open to all, regardless of home campus or academic major, this intensive 3-4 week interim mini-semester blends internships and cultural components.

Six credit hours in humanities and the social sciences are available to undergraduate students satisfactorily completing the Washington Semester. The program has been recognized in publications of the American Political Science Association and was the subject of the first journal article published on Washington Semesters. Please feel free to contact our office for more information.
