Flyer for CU in D.C. Science Policy Information Session

Sharing on behalf of Education Abroad: Learn about science policy in D.C. this coming May while earning credit!

The Global Seminar: CU in D.C.- Science Policy program is a wonderful learning opportunity for students who are interested in the intersection of the sciences with policy-making in the heart of D.C.

Participants will: 

  • Get a first-hand look at the inner workings of some of D.C.’s most interesting agencies, institutions, and organizations such as NASA, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health.
  • Learn how policy is shaped in the US Capitol at the intersection of science, government, and society.
  • Discover the working life of a scientist, both in and out of the lab. 


Don’t just take it from us, alumni of this program consider it an invaluable opportunity:
“This course was the most influential experience in all five years of my college career. I came out of that course a changed person, and I want to advocate for science in my community because of the knowledge and confidence I gained by taking the course.” – Summer 2022 participant
