 Unique opportunity for students to intern for one or two months (June-July) at SIOI (Italian Society for International Organization) in Rome, Italy.

SIOI is a UN agency located in Palazzetto Venezia, Rome, and its institutional aims are diplomatic and international training, gathering research and information on topics in international organization, international relations, international cooperation, and international protection of human rights.

We believe that this will be a remarkable experiential learning opportunity for our students, particularly but not exclusively for those students in the fields of Political Science, Law, and International Studies/Relations. While interning at SIOI, UW students will have an opportunity to be involved in the organization of international events, assist with receptions and lectures by heads of states and Ambassadors hosted at SIOI, and, importantly, they will be granted access to the rich archives of SIOI for their own academic research.

For further information about SIOI activities please visit:  http://www.sioi.org/pages/en/home.php

Student inquiries and requests for assistance with the application process should be directed to Giuseppe Leporace (glepo@uw.edu).

All of us have known students who, for one reason or another, have found it necessary to leave the University of Washington without a B.A. in hand. They relocate out of state, find full-time employment, start families – and all of a sudden that dream of a UW degree recedes into the distance.

Integrated Social Sciences is a fully online interdisciplinary program that allows students who have earned at least 75 credits and have an overall GPA of 2.0 to finish their degrees. Returning UW students currently in the ISS program were formerly pursuing degrees ranging from Philosophy to English to Forestry. Against all expectations, they have returned home to the UW, some after nearly 30 years away, and are on track to degree completion.
