Professor Begins Career Via Washington Semester

Through this program, I got my first internship with an American think tank.

Our nation's capital has always interested Professor Priya Doshi, a professor of strategic communications at American University. When she arrived to start teaching in 2007, it was not her first time on American University's campus. With more than 15 years of experience as an international public relations practitioner, Doshi credits the Washington Semester Program for launching her career.
