Our program is distinguished in part by its location. DC offers a wealth of access points for students to develop their understanding of global and domestic challenges and power structures, and our students balance coursework with opportunities to immerse themselves in the DC metro area.

    I find these kind of discoveries both very interesting but at the same time terrifying. I would find it claustrophobic getting myself into the cave in search for new species! But very exciting discoveries you’ve made! Thanks for sharing.
