Following four days of online classwork, students will spend 2 weeks in Washington, D.C. for an intensive hands-on experience.
During our time in Washington, we will combine a series of academic sessions with The Washington Center, site visits, small group sessions, and an impressive array of guest speakers – including current and former elected officials, party leaders, media personalities, and prominent interest group representatives from all ideological perspectives. You’ll network with Drake alumni, participate in VIP tours of government buildings, and have a chance to meet and question people who make the decisions that affect our national policy.
