Washington Internship Institute: A Joint Program with Daemen College

How would you have liked to have started your semester by attending the Presidential Inauguration and a pizza party afterwards at the WII offices, meeting former Vice President Al Gore's Chief of Staff, Roy Neel, and former chief speechwriter for former President George W. Bush, John McConnell, at the WII orientation? 

The Washington Internship Institute is a Fall and Spring internship in Washington, DC.  Internships in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors offer practical experience for all majors. The WII program is a semester long opportunity, primarily situated within an organization, that supports the academic career interest of the student.  In addition, two courses are taught in a classroom setting.  Students participating in the WII program receive 15 academic credits.

Academic tracks include:

  • Environmental Law and Policy Studies
  • Global Health Policy Studies
  • Global Women's Leadership Development
  • Inside Washington: Politics & Policy
  • International and Foreign Policy Studies
