Learning Express - Washington, DC: A Capital in Constant Change - now held online  

Announcement: March 12, 2020: Learning Across America is in the process of shifting to an online format for the rest of the semester (June 30, 2020) so that au pairs can still earn their required credits.

Posted March 12, 2020.

From the selection by George Washington of the location for the city to the present, DC, one of three planned capital cities in the world, has grown and changed in infinite ways. Get a local's take on the history of the city and the people who built it, including the origins of the Smithsonian Institution and the evolution of the National Mall. On field trips through the city you will visit some of the major monuments and memorials, the Library of Congress and Eastern Market, and have a chance to see some of the current changes taking places throughout the city.

The BMCC Learning Express program offers students who don't live near one of our campus locations the opportunity to travel to an American city and take classes there. Students who live in the Washington, DC area will enjoy taking a deeper dive into the history and culture of their host city.

Each day students will learn in the classroom and onsite at local attractions.
