I run summer high school programs at American University’s School of International Service (SIS). If you are advising any students interested in international relations, you may want to know about Community of Scholars, a 3-week program for rising juniors and seniors.
Community of Scholars is a “hybrid” program which combines one week of online learning at home and two weeks of traditional on-campus classes. Students may live on campus or commute during the on-campus segment. The dates are July 3 to 21, 2017.
Students will study international relations in specially designed 3-credit classes taught by AU faculty. Professors engage students through active discussions, guest speakers, and Model UN-style simulations. In addition, students will travel downtown for briefings at the State Department, World Bank, USIP, and several embassies.
The cost is $2,990 for tuition (which includes 3 credits) and an additional $1,625 for those living on campus. There are no extra costs—all meals, activities, transportation to downtown sites, and classroom materials are included in the tuition.
Please do not hesitate to email or call me with any questions.
