"The entire city becomes your campus; the museums, the history, the nightlife, and the political atmosphere provide an experience unlike anything Ithaca has to offer."Erin Noonan, CIW student spring 2013
Design your own once in a lifetime experience by spending part of your academic career with the Cornell in Washington program. There are opportunities for Cornellians and non-Cornellians (summer only).
All programs combine Cornell classes with internship experience and all participants reside at Cornell's Wolpe Center.
Open to any Cornellian, the Semester Program is the perfect blend of practical work experience and Cornell University courses, located in one of the world's great capital cities.
Urban Scholars Program
Cornellians with an interest in public service can now participate in the Cornell Urban Scholars in Washington program (CUSP), which integrates a community-based internship with academic coursework. This program is only offered in the spring.
CAPS in Washington is specifically for students in China and Asia-Pacific Studies. This program is only offered in the fall.
In conjunction with the School of Continuing Education and Summer Session, Cornell in Washington offers an intensive, multifaceted summer experience designed to give participants a greater understanding of the workings of government and the processes by which public policy is developed. During this eight week program, students enroll in two of three courses taught in the morning and in the evening; most of the day is devoted to individual internships of the student's choosing.
