Internship Program

The Washington D.C. Summer Study Program is an 8-credit learning community program.

In addition to working in Washington D.C., participants are expected to learn about the sites where other program participants are working, to participate in orientation meetings, seminars, and workshops, as assigned throughout the year and through the summer.

Students live in community in furnished apartments near the Metro and experience life as a urban professional.
