King's Senior Completes Internship at The Heritage Foundation
Politics, Philosophy, and Economics program helps Matt Rosenbaum succeed in DC
NEW YORK, September 7, 2010—The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., has one of the most competitive internship programs in the nation’s capital. Students across the country compete annually for only a few summer internship slots, and The King’s College was pleased to have an intern at Heritage for the second summer in a row.
Senior Matthew Rosenbaum completed a research internship at the Center for American Studies. Rosenbaum said, “I worked on research for two books and an essay. One of the books is being written by Dr. Lee Edwards, and it is about the past decade and what Heritage's role will be in the upcoming decade.” The other book and the essay are both being written by Heritage’s president, Dr. Ed Feulner.
Rosenbaum, who is majoring in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics, credits his education at King’s with helping him to be prepared to work at one of America’s top think tanks. For example, he said, a course on Constitutional Law helped him immensely during regular lectures with Heritage staff members. More generally, classes on political philosophy and economics came in handy when performing research and engaging in debate.
Rosenbaum’s favorite experience was debating his fellow workers in the office. They were “usually about political philosophy,” he said.
A Heritage internship is very competitive, but Rosenbaum feels confident that his education at King’s prepared him for success. Working side-by-side with National Merit Scholars and students from Harvard and the University of Chicago, Rosenbaum said that “my classes and what I’ve learned from my fellow students have been invaluable.”
An education at The King’s College prepares students for positions of leadership in the institutions of government, civil society, media, law, business, education, the arts, and the church. Think tanks, like Heritage, provide research and commentary that regularly cross the desks of our nation’s decision makers. Rosenbaum, like many of our other students, is already living out the vision of King’s.
The King’s College is located in the Empire State Building in New York City.
