Many Humanities majors spend a semester within their junior or senior year in Washington DC as part of the internship program. We have found that non-profits are very interested in interns who have strong communication skills, which makes the Humanities major extremely beneficial. In addition, some students have gone on to graduate school or careers in the Washington DC area due to their participation in the internship program.
