Study In Washington DC
Partnering with Butler University, Centre sends students in the fall and spring to the nation's capital, where they complete internships and take courses that focus on the art and architecture of Washington and "Politics and Policy in our Nations Capital “. Typically, students work a regular workday (often 9 to 5) Mondays through Thursdays. For this, students receive six hours of internship credit. Occasionally, an internship will be paid, though students should not count on that, most internships are non-paid. The fall program will not run this fall 2023 but will be running in the spring of 2024. If you are on this program, you cannot do a Centre Term as the dates do not allow it.
Internship opportunities are available in a wide array of fields: students who have participated in the program have interned with the Speaker and Minority Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives; ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, and CNN; the Holocaust and Air and Space Museums; Amnesty International and the Organization of American States; more than 20 Senators from both parties; the United Nations Foundation; the Pentagon, State Department, and Agency for International Development; the National Rehabilitation Center; and many law firms, think tanks and advocacy groups.
