Christendom College’s politics practica program, directed by professor of political science and economics Dr. Bernard Way, is a unique feature of the political science department that has been active for many years, giving students the opportunities to not only network with known political figures, but also earn credit for rigorous political internships. The program has featured well-known political figures in the past, including John Taylor, president of the Virginia Institute for Public Policy, and Dr. Christopher Manion, former staff director of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere.
