Director, PPL Scholars Program
Join a group of students dedicated to the study of politics, policy and law. Politics, Policy, and Law Scholars will complete their degree in three years while using Washington as a laboratory for practical experience. Take part in site visits and field practicums to law firms, think tanks, government agencies, Capitol Hill, the courts, and NGOs. This exciting, unique program, offers students the opportunity to complete the same four year degree in a shorter time period, with an added emphasis on analytical research and writing.
