Day 1

A Week in the Life

: Day 1

Many Washington Center students intern with the federal government—in the White House or Congress or in federal agencies such as the Departments of Justice, Commerce and State. If you’re interested in any area of public policy, politics or public administration, there’s no better place to prepare for your future.

Interning at the EPA is really the culmination of my undergrad work, taking everything I have learned and thrusting me into the real world of politics and policy in Washington. It has completely altered my perspective on how much power and politics affect government decisions and outcomes. Working for the EPA has expanded my knowledge of environmental issues by leaps and bounds and has convinced me to return to D.C. to build a career working in the government.
