This 10-week experience begins shortly after spring semester ends.

The 8-credit course, POL/JRN/MAC 426 Inside Washington, encompasses student-led small-group discussions across D.C. with policy makers, leading media figures, special interest influencers, government agency specialists and nonprofit leaders; as well as field trips. Participants write reflections about what they have learned, and about national news and policy developments. You intern full time in your area of interest for nine weeks as part of the course.

During the entire summer, students live together in all-intern housing owned by the Washington Intern Student Housing organization, or WISH. The housing has kitchens and laundry facilities, and is a 5-minute walk from a Metro stop.

You are responsible for your meals, professional attire, and transportation around town, plus travel getting to and from Washington.

This class often counts toward elective hours, so talk with your academic advisor to see how Inside Washington Summer will work for you.
