Internships and Experiential Learning
The Washington, D.C. area has a large variety of internship opportunities that relate to Latin America and the Caribbean. LASC offers an “Experiential Learning” course (LASC 286 and LASC 486) that offers university credit for internship or other unpaid work experiences. Taking this course encourages students to apply academic knowledge to potential career placements, and connects the university to area companies, institutions, and organizations, leading to a development of strong and mutually beneficial relationships with area professionals and community leaders.
