Experience LSU in D.C.
Through the LSU in D.C. program, students spend four weeks in D.C., earning course credit, going on field trips, and networking with professionals in journalism, public relations, media law, advertising and politics. If you think you might want to work in Washington, this program is a great way to learn of the many career opportunities available in the city.

We’re offering two courses taught by Dr. John Maxwell Hamilton, the Hopkins P. Breazeale Professor in LSU’s Manship School of Mass Communication and a senior scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C, and Meghan McCune, MA.
