American University Global Scholars
Being a student at American means finding your place in the community, and for me a very important part of that has been a Global Scholar. Global Scholars is a three year program under the School of International Service that lets us graduate in three years instead of four. In our three years we are placed in a living/learning community together fist year, take World Politics and International Research together, and our senior year we can take a capstone class all together.
Because we only have three years, I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to have the same intern experience that other students have. However, looking at both my experience and my fellow GloSchos, I know that isn’t true. I’m in my second internship now and other student’s internships range from non-profits that bring textbooks to Africa to USAID.
What I’m getting at is don’t be worried that you won’t have time for your dream internship. Just go for it!
