The American Studies Program (ASP), located in Washington, DC, is designed for juniors and seniors and is sponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. ASP is an intensive fall or spring semester, blending seminars and hands-on internships. Combining theory with practice, each of the three seminar classes focuses on specific domestic and international policy topics. Creative internships are individually arranged to be pre-career work experiences to accommodate diverse majors or areas of interest. The 2010-2011 academic year curriculum allows students to choose from a public policy initiatives track or global humanitarian enterprise track. Students may earn 15-16 hours of credit through this interdisciplinary program.
