When you apply to The Washington Center, you select a program-specific area. The programming area you select will be led by one of our academic 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 program-specific 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 program-specific area you select do not limit the courses from which you can choose.

- Advocacy, Service & Arts
