In conjunction with Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA), the Josef Korbel School participates in the Global Security and Development program in Washington D.C. This program seeks to enhance students' understanding of the issues, institutions and procedures involved in security and development and to build professional skills needed for career opportunities through a combination of coursework and supervised internships.
Participating students work 20 to 30 hours per week at their internship location, and attend two to three classes per week. Close interaction with policy officials and experts in trade and investment, economic development, conflict resolution, transitional justice and democratization expose students to the rules, procedures, policies and institutional approaches associated with processes of development and globalization. The program enhances professional skills and provides numerous networking opportunities unique to being located in the nation's capital.
The D.C. program is only available to current, continuing (second year) Josef Korbel School students and is a competitive internal program with a maximum enrollment of 20 students per year.
