Washington Center Internships

Washington Center internships are available for one semester in Washington, D.C. You should be at least a second semester sophomore, junior, or senior to apply. Internships are available to students in all fields. Students take a course with an expert in their field and are placed in exciting internships. Placements include positions in many government sites including Congress or the White House, such corporations as Bank of America or Merrill Lynch, or such humanitarian organizations as Amnesty International, and many more. The Washington Center has student housing available. A number of the placements do provide stipends, but generally students pay tuition and their housing costs to OCU and can earn 9-12 credit hours.
