The Washington, D.C. Internship Experience

There’s no better way to launch your career than with a professional internship. In fact, college students with a substantive internship on their resume have a clear edge in the competition for entry-level positions. So it's no surprise that the majority of students are now making it a priority to gain this sort of experience during their undergraduate years.


But an internship is only part of the story

One of the many things that makes The Washington Center's program so valuable is its combination of classroom learning with real-world experience.


You'll take part in the LEAD Colloquium, which is a structured set of activities that enriches your experience in Washington, D.C. It helps you understand leadership and the opportunity you have to contribute to your community locally, nationally and internationally.


You'll also choose from a wide variety of courses offered each term to extend your on-campus learning and complement your internship.


Lastly, you’ll complete a professional portfolio that helps you to set goals for and reflect upon your time in Washington. This document ties together all that you’ve learned throughout your semester or summer term with TWC.
