A limited number of Moravian students may participate in programs of study offered by American University, Washington, D.C. Special fall- or spring-term opportunities include courses in foreign policy, environment, education policy, American government, journalism, science and technology, justice, public law, the arts, and international development. There also are internship opportunities.
Moravian students are especially encouraged to participate in the fall term. Applicants are judged on the basis of their academic record and the individual research project they propose to undertake if selected. The student bears the expenses of travel to and from Washington, room and board, books, incidentals, and the tuition charged by American University. Financial aid is available. Credit for the term's work is granted by Moravian College. The grades earned at American University are reflected on the Moravian College transcript and are factored into the student's cumulative QPA. Interested students should consult with Gary L. Olson, who serves as the local representative.
