American Studies Program (ASP)
Founded in 1976, the American Studies Program
has served hundreds of students as a “Washington,
D.C. campus.” ASP uses Washington as a stimulating
educational laboratory where collegians gain hands-
on experience with an internship in their chosen
field. Participants explore pressing national and
international issues in public policy seminars led by
ASP faculty and Washington professionals. Students
select enrollment in the Public Affairs or Marketplace
track. Both tracks examine the same public issues and
culminate in field projects assessing those issues in
light of biblical principles and Christian responsibility.
Students in the Public Affairs Track use policy concepts
to evaluate contending approaches, while students in
the Marketplace Track analyze the issues by assessing
how business and commercial environments shape
different perspectives. The aim of the program is to
help Council schools prepare their students to live
faithfully in contemporary society as followers of
Christ. Students earn 16 semester hours of credit.
This
program is sponsored by The Master’s College & Seminary.
