The University of California Washington Program (UCDC) provides UCSB students with a unique opportunity to live, work as interns, study, and conduct research in our nation’s political and cultural epicenter, Washington, D.C. Designed for undergraduates in their junior and senior years, the program assumes students have completed a significant part of their upper-division major coursework and that their internships and research projects will serve to enhance their academic study. The UCDC program offers something for everyone, so students in all fields are welcome and encouraged to apply! Science students might find Summer Quarter particularly attractive.
Organizations UCSB students have recently interned for include:
Department of Education
White House Correspondence Office
World Wildlife Fund
Meet the Press
Environmental Protection Agency
