The National Institute of American History and Democracy, a joint venture by The College of William and Mary and The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, announces two new programs for students around the country and around the world: The Williamsburg Semester-in-Residence and the two semester Williamsburg Collegiate Program in Early American History, Material Culture, and Museum Studies.
The Williamsburg Collegiate Program in Early American History, Material Culture, and Museum Studies is a seven-course certificate program that combines museum internships, material culture field schools, and coursework. It is open to students in any discipline who would like to study in Williamsburg for an academic year. The program includes a variety of special courses in several departments at the College of William and Mary, many of them taught by experts from the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
The Williamsburg Semester-in-Residence Program in Early American History offers students from colleges and universities world-wide the opportunity to study early America for a fall or a spring at the College of William and Mary through courses taught "on-site" at historic places, including especially Colonial Williamsburg but extending to many other museums in the Chesapeake region. This four-course program also includes an advanced readings seminar in early American history, plus an elective course.
We invite you to offer our Williamsburg Semester and Collegiate program to your students through direct application to us or through your office of study abroad programs. Please see our website for more information and application forms.
