Substantive Work Experience
Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Internships are individually tailored to offer each student a substantive work experience in Washington, D.C. TWC’s internships are supervised by professional academic program advisors, most of whom have master’s or doctoral degrees and extensive experience in their fields.


The Washington Center maintains ties with hundreds of potential sites, many of which are longtime partners. All internships are substantive and challenging, and at least 80% of the student’s work is non-clerical.


Every student’s academic program advisor visits the work site to ensure that the university’s, as well as the student’s and the organization’s, expectations are being met. If any problems are encountered and cannot be resolved, TWC will find the student a more appropriate placement.
