Semester Away Programs

The distinctive Jesuit, liberal arts education that you get at Holy Cross cannot be replicated anywhere else. But some Holy Cross students look to dive deeper into a work environment or a specialized field of study, and that can lead them off campus for a brief period. 


Holy Cross is proud to offer our Semester Away option: the Washington Semester Program. Students combine an intensive internship experience with a distinctive academic course and a capstone project. 

Washington Semester Program

The Washington Semester is a unique study away program for third- and fourth-year students. During the semester, they work, study and conduct research in Washington, D.C., for full academic credit.
