UCDC Internship Program (fall or winter 2018 quarter) DUE March 12th at 5pm

The UCDC (quarter in Washington, D.C.) Program supervises and supports students who pursue internships and academic study in the nation’s capital. The program is open through a competitive application process to juniors and seniors (occasionally sophomores) in all majors. Students enroll for fall, winter, or spring quarter, earn 12-17 course credits, and continue to be registered as full-time students. Applicant selection is based on academic record, a written statement, letters of recommendation, and possibly a personal interview.

Students spend 30 hours each week at their internships.  Washington, D.C. offers a wide array of internship possibilities, from working on Capitol Hill or in a government agency to interning for a major media outlet, a nonprofit organization, or a cultural institution. Internship placements are geared toward student interests, including but not limited to:

-government and public policy
-science and the environment
-human rights
-education
-health
-electoral politics
-the arts 
-law
-business and finance
-media and communications 

Students also attend a weekly research seminar.  An essential component of the Washington program, the seminar enables students to draw on Washington’s rich variety of research opportunities to complete a research paper on a subject related to their internships.  In addition to the research seminar, students may also opt to take one upper-division elective course from a range of classes offered by faculty at the Washington Center.  Elective classes are offered in several disciplines, including the social and natural sciences, arts and humanities.  All courses take advantage of Washington’s unique resources for study and research.

SELECTION CRITERIA 

Students from all majors are encouraged to apply. Admission is competitive. To be eligible for consideration, students must:

  • Currently be a junior or senior (although sophomores from natural sciences and engineering majors may also apply).
  • Have a strong academic record.
  • Provide two strong letters of recommendation (if possible from faculty rather than TAs or employers). 

Final decisions will be made approximately one month from the application deadline. A mandatory orientation for accepted students will happen near the end of the previous quarter (e.g., orientation for fall quarter will be held the preceding spring, etc.).

ADMISSION

Admission will be based upon the student's statement of purpose, academic record, letters of recommendation, and in some cases a personal interview. Consideration is also given to the distribution of academic disciplines participating in the program. Participation in UCDC changes the way in which a student meets residency requirements for a degree. Contact your college academic preceptor for more information.
