Washington Semester

A limited number of Moravian University students may participate in programs of study offered by American University, Washington, D.C. Special fall- or spring-term opportunities include courses in foreign policy, environment, education policy, American government, journalism, science and technology, justice, public law, the arts, and international development. There also are internship opportunities. 

Moravian students are especially encouraged to participate in the fall term.  To be eligible to apply, students must have completed at least 12 units of credit, including one full term at Moravian, have a cumulative GPA of 2.7 or above, and complete an interview with the Moravian representative to the program.  Once approved, the students will apply for the program via the Washington Semester at American University website.  

The student bears the expenses of travel to and from Washington, room and board, books, incidentals, and the tuition charged by American University. Financial aid is available. Credit for the term's work is granted by Moravian University. The grades earned at American University are reflected on the Moravian University transcript and are factored into the student's cumulative GPA.

Dr. Daniel Jasper, Dean of the School of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences currently serves as the Moravian representative.
