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 one of three tracks:

Public Policy, Strategic Communication, or Global

Development. All three 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

Policy Track investigate a pressing public policy

issue being debated on Capitol Hill and focus on

the political difficulties policymakers face when

economic, humantarian, and national security

priorities come into conflict with one another.

Students in the Strategic Communication Track

engage Washington, D.C.-based organizations and

communication professionals to explore the role of

strategic communication in achieving organizational

goals. Students in the Global Development Track

gain professional experience aimed at learning what

it takes to form and lead institutional partnerships in

cross-cultural contexts. As a member of the GDE

team, the student works on a real-world project under

the direction of a real-world client. The aim of ASP

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.
