Program Overview

Discover a career in political science.

At the NSLC on Political Action & Public Policy, you’ll immerse yourself in the functions of Congress, crafting new legislation as a Senator and discovering the complex process of running a political campaign.

This has been one of the most formative experiences in my life. Connecting with academics and leaders in politics, as well as meeting the next generation of leaders was inspiring.
