“Woodrow Wilson School students are practical idealists; they enter with an unabashed commitment to doing good” — Michael Rothschild, Dean, 1995-2002
Learning Outside the Classroom
WWS graduate students are deeply engaged in the operations of the School. They participate in the graduate student government — the Woodrow Wilson Action Committee (WWAC) — as well as many other student organizations.
In addition, they attend almost daily public lectures and informal talks. These public affairs events enrich formal course work by exposing students to leading policymakers and advocates from within and outside the School.
Finally, students participate in field work around the globe. We have a rich internship program that sends students all over the world to learn in the field — putting into practice the lessons learned in the classroom.
As a result, our students learn about specific policy topics from a variety of perspectives.
