To better serve the needs of the students who participate in the three CAPC Internship programs, the Maryland Internship Program (MIP), the Capitol Hill Internship Program (CHIP), and the Public Policy Internship Program (PPIP), the Center will be offering one seminar course for all three programs. For the Fall 2016 semester, the course will be titled: "GVPT388W: Topical Investigations; Experiential Learning: Maryland, Public Policy, and Beyond." This course will combine aspects of all three programs while giving students a firm grasp of the theoretical underpinnings of policymaking at the state and federal level.
If you were already accepted into one of the three programs for the Fall 2016 semester under GVPT388P, you will be automatically enrolled in the new course so this is just a notification. If you are in the process of submitting your application, you will need to register for both GVPT388W and GVPT386 to receive credit for both the seminar and your internship credit.
In addition, future semesters of the CAPC Internship Programs will use one streamlined application to maximize efficiency and clarity for students. If you have any questions about this or anything else related to experiential learning in the Government and Politics, please contact CAPC Coordinator Christian Hosam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
