Fall 2019 Internship Ideas

The supportive DC Semester Program helps students research, apply for, and secure internships which relate to the semester topic — so you are not on your own. The Program administrators coordinate directly with each intern supervisor to provide a quality internship experience. Students spend 30-35 hours per week at their internship sites during the semester. Your internship doesn't just end when the semester is over. In fact, many past Program scholars have been asked to work at their internship sites over the summer or are hired full-time after graduation!
