Seton Hall > News & Events 

Expansion to Washington, D.C.The School of Diplomacy is pleased to announce two new course offerings in Washington, D.C., beginning Fall 2014. "The Washington Experience Study Tour: Actors, Institutions and the Policy Process," and the "Washington Seminar on Global Policy Challenges," are the latest additions to the School's pilot program in the nation's capital. The courses are open to enrolled Diplomacy undergraduate and graduate students and may be taken in conjunction with internship courses to assist with maintaining full-time enrollment status.

Interested current students are encouraged to attend a Semester in D.C. information session on Friday, April 4 from 12-1:30 p.m. in the Diplomacy Room, McQuaid Hall. RSVP to Katherine.campbell@student.shu.edu. Prospective students and external community members should contact Dr. Catherine Ruby, Director of Internships and Career Development, at Catherine.ruby@shu.edu with questions. 

Since the fall of 2012, the School of Diplomacy has offered students the opportunity to experience first-hand the inner-workings of our nation’s capital as well as the United Nations community and the world of international business. An affiliate member of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA), the School is the only member school to have this kind of presence in both New York City and Washington, D.C.

Having a presence in Washington, D.C., with a U.S. government focus is an ideal complement to a New York, United Nations-focused program. Through the School’s exclusive alliance with the United Nations Foundation, the United Nations Association of the USA, and an extensive network of contacts in Washington, D.C., students practice international relations with top experts while contributing to national and international diplomacy efforts through some of the most prestigious internships in the country.

Graduate and undergraduate students have the opportunity to complete semester-long internships at organizations and government agencies such as the White House, the CIA, U.S. Departments of State, Commerce, Homeland Security and Justice; at businesses such as McClatchy Newsgroup and World Bank Group; and at nongovernmental organizations and embassies while maintaining their degree program at Seton Hall University.
