Spend a semester in Washington, D.C. and gain the experience and insight you need to succeed. Serve as an intern in the nation’s capital this fall or spring while taking classes at Georgetown University.
Designed for undergraduate students interested in U.S. politics, American government and journalism, Capital Semester serves as a great way to kick-off your career in politics, journalism, lobbying, government, or the nonprofit sector.
Capital Semester allows students to spend 15 weeks earning 12 transferable course credits at Georgetown University while gaining valuable work experience at a top D.C. organization.
As part of the experience, Capital Semester students attend exclusive briefings at various sites around Washington, such as the White House Complex, the U.S. Capitol, State Department and Federal Reserve. Students meet leaders and government officials, hear from policy-makers at regular guest lectures, and interact with D.C. professionals through networking activities.
Students may apply to one of two tracks – Public Policy or Political Journalism. Internship placements and academic study will correspond with the chosen track.
With a single application, students are enrolled at Georgetown, housed in a furnished residential building, and are placed in a competitive internship for a fall or spring semester.
