WLC*DC: Connecting the Classroom and the Capital

WLC*DC is a program designed to enhance experiential learning by incorporating Washington resources into the World Languages and Cultures curriculum. WLC*DC responds to the aims of AU and the College of Arts and Sciences to build a “Washington connection” that provides a forum for the practical application of coursework outside the classroom. WLC*DC brings undergraduate and graduate students into contact with a wide range of government departments, international organizations, embassies, cultural agencies, museums, archives, and libraries.
