Whether it's interning in London, studying in Spain or doing research in Germany, many Hobart and William Smith students will have had some kind of international learning experience before they graduate.

With careful planning, pre-law students are encouraged to take advantage of semester abroad opportunities and participate fully in the liberal arts experience. While the Center for Global Educations offers abroad programs on six continents, pre-law students often find themselves spending a semester in Washington, D.C.

Washington, D.C.

Students participating in the Washington, D.C. program have the opportunity, through both coursework and an internship placement, to gain insight into how policy is made in the nation's capital. The courses taught in the program are policy-related and the internships into which students will be placed involve almost daily contact and discussion with governmental decision-makers or others involved in making or influencing government policy. In this way, participants in the program will experience first-hand the intense activity inherent in Washington politics.



At HWS, students have the freedom to study at any of our Global Education destinations.

The featured abroad program is recommended by the pre-law program based on content of the curriculum.
