Maintaining ties with more than 1,000 internship sites in the governmental, international, business and nonprofit sectors, the The Washington Center can tailor an internship to your academic and professional interests and needs. Not only will you gain valuable work experience to add to your résumé, it is an opportunity to learn the ins and outs of your industry from those who’ve been navigating it their entire career, and are eager to help you kick start your professional life.
Want to take an in-depth look into public policy and media, international affairs, or electoral politics? The Washington Center also offers the opportunity to hone your point of view through a series of academic seminars. Lasting between a few days to two weeks, these sessions provide opportunity to engage, question, and learn from leading voices while also gaining insider’s access to embassies, Capitol Hill, and media or nongovernmental organizations.
