When you apply to The Washington Center, you select a career-specific programming area. The programming area you select will be lead by one of our program advisors who will plan programming activities for you and other interns who share your general interests throughout the course of the semester, review your assignments, and visit you on-site at your internship.
*Please note that the programming area you select does not depend on the internship you choose. You'll work with someone in the Office of Internship Site Relations, on an individual basis, to find an internship related to your unique interests. Likewise, the internship and programming area you select do not limit the courses from which you can choose.
We offer the following programming areas:
- Advocacy, Service & Arts
