Washington Semester Summer Internship Program

Summer Internship Program students at the Newseum

Did you know that Washington, DC hosts the majority of the world's international organizations, in addition to many fortune 500 companies, non-profit headquarters, and media and consulting firms?

Now, imagine spending your summer interning at Amnesty International, or at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, or even at the U.S. Senate. Think about combining your internship experience with an academic course that will use DC as an extension of your classroom.

When you join the Washington Semester Summer Internship Program at American University, you will be connected with a university and program that has 70 years of experience providing college students around the U.S. with internships and experiential courses that connect professional experiences with academic coursework.

At the end of your summer, you will have a changed understanding of the world, which could impact your outlook on your college studies and future career.

Pleas join us this summer from June 5 to July 28, 2017 to build your professional experience and network with a DC experience.

"The Washington Semester Summer Internship Program changed me for the better. In my internship, I grew as a writer everyday under the guidance of my editors. I covered everything from new legislation to congressional hearings to Supreme Court rulings. I can honestly say after returning to my home college, I was more organized and revitalized for my senior year."
