The Washington Program
University of California, Berkeley
Each Fall and Spring, UC juniors and seniors travel to Washington, D.C. to intern, do research, and take classes for a semester. UCDC students come from all majors, intern three to four days a week, and take two classes. Students from each UC campus live and take classes at the UC Washington Center, an eleven-story building about six blocks from the White House. Washington, D.C. offers a wide variety of academic, professional and rich cultural opportunities for undergraduates.
Students are selected based on academic excellence, professional maturity and demonstrated interest in a particular area. Because it is both an academic and an internship program, students research in class what they experience professionally in their internships. Theory meets practice for a powerful learning experience. In addition, students clarify their future career direction, get on-the-ground work experience, and build professional networks.
