Internships in Washington, D.C.

Washington Center & Washington Internship Institute

Drury University is affiliated with the Washington Center and the Washington Internship Institute, private, nonprofit organizations providing semester and summer internships for students. They have developed over 500 work opportunities in the metropolitan Washington, D. C. area, and offer academic seminars in conjunction with the internship experience. Recent internships by Drury students in D.C. have included placements at the State Department, congressional offices on Capital Hill, and at Amnesty International.

Drury University credit is received for participation in the programs which ordinarily involve 12-15 hours during the fall or spring semester, and 9 hours in the summer. Students' regular tuition payments to Drury meet expenses for semester internships and most of the cost for the summer internships. Housing and travel costs are responsibility of the student.

Programs are open to juniors and seniors with a minimum grade point average of 3.0. Students from any academic discipline who desire a living-learning experience in the nation's capital are encouraged to apply.
