The CALL is...

A Unique
Undergraduate Experience

One semester at The CALL will help you to maximize your internship, integrate your personal and professional development, and shape your trajectory after graduation.

The cornerstone of The CALL is the Experiential Learning Semester (ELS), which offers downtown living and credit-bearing internships, paired with unique mentoring and networking opportunities.  Students learn how to balance work and academic life, as they stay on track for graduation with coursework while expanding their post graduate options through solid work experience and professional development workshops. 

Another unique feature of the ELS is the chance for students to simultaneously take the knowledge and methods learned both in the classroom and in their internship and directly apply it to the other – infusing their coursework with “real world” understanding and better academic contextualization and analysis in their professional work. 

The four ways The CALL enhances your Georgetown experience

Mentored internship experience

Experience downtown D.C. as a resident

Tailored coursework advances your degree

Strengthen professional skills and leadership

Prepare yourself for life beyond Georgetown's gates

Through The CALL, students amass their professional capital by honing the necessary skills in finding and applying for internships, strengthen their professional acumen during their internship, deepen their networks to ensure greater future professional mobility and opportunities, and highlight all of the resources Georgetown has to offer now and in the future.   

Students are assigned a personalized career coach during the internship search process, and receive continued support during their Experiential Learning Semester.  Georgetown’s massive alumni network and strong relationships with employers across the District (not to mention worldwide), give students the introductions they need to intern at their dream sites and help them meet their professional goals.

Health Justice Alliance @TheCALL

In this Convergence Lab, you will work with a multi-disciplinary team of HJA faculty and clinicians to help explore and develop a role for undergraduates with HJA. Using a design-thinking process, students will examine gaps in HJA’s current services, research similar undergraduate models, and engage with key HJA stakeholders and community members to advance this goal. In alignment with HJA’s mission and values, Lab work will be pursued through a racial equity lens and in a manner that supports co-creation with community members.

The CALL, by design, is an experiential program. Thrusting students into worlds that are, while perhaps familiar, fundamentally novel, it creates a stimulating environment for critical observation and reflection.

The CALL has taught me more than a normal school year in such a short timeframe.
