The UC Washington Program (UCDC)
University of California, Berkeley
Each Fall and Spring, UC juniors and seniors from all majors travel to Washington, D.C. to intern, do research, and take classes for a semester. Students live and attend courses at the UC Washington Center, an eleven-story building six blocks from the White House. Washington, D.C. offers a wide variety of academic, professional and rich cultural opportunities for undergraduates.
Students are selected based on academic excellence, professional maturity and demonstrated interest in a particular area. Because it is both an academic and an internship program, students research in class what they experience professionally in their internships. Theory meets practice for a powerful learning experience! UCDC helps students to clarify their future career direction, get on-the-ground work experience, and build professional networks.
Past program participants have said: “UCDC was my best semester at Cal!” and “UCDC was instrumental in helping me get my first DC job after graduation.”
