For students who want to better understand human society and make meaningful contributions as global citizens, the social sciences provide opportunities to learn about cultures, markets and nation-states; to conduct groundbreaking research; to meet noted figures on the national stage; and to immerse themselves in the world around them.
Maryland’s Eastern Shore is fertile ground for people interested in the American past, as well as a perfect place to inspire a global perspective. Taking advantage of well-placed internships, field experiences, research opportunities and study abroad programs, our students are well prepared to tackle the challenges of the 21st century.
With its proximity to the capital cities of Annapolis, MD, and Washington, DC, Washington College is well positioned to offer internship opportunities with government agencies and to bring distinguished visitors to campus. The Louis L. Goldstein Program in Public Affairs, the Harwood Program in American Journalism and the C.V. Starr Center for the American Experience routinely sponsor talks and symposia on national and world affairs.
Students who choose Washington College also have ample opportunity for international travel. With more than 35 programs in 40 countries to choose from, we offer one of the broadest and most extensive study abroad programs of any small liberal arts college.
