You will travel to Washington, DC to build understanding in both the political process and policymaking. You will meet with recent, mid-, and late-career USD alumni, among others, to understand how a degree from the Department of Political Science at USD can launch your career in Washington, DC. You will learn what USD alumni wish they would have known, experience some of the diversity of careers available to you, and see how the sausage is made. Learning Objectives: -Gain knowledge about the practical (as opposed to theoretical) political process from inside the hall of of the US capital -Better understand the bureaucratic policymaking process by talking to USD graduates who work at high levels of the US federal bureaucracy -Learn more about how policy ideas come from the private sector to the public sector by talking with policy researchers -Synthesize experiences through daily journaling and post-program reflection
