"Interning at NPR gave me the chance to work alongside professional journalists. Working at the Social Media Desk, I was at the forefront of how new technologies are shaping journalism. The entire DC experience helped me build a strong base of friends, connections and colleagues."

One of the most vibrant and intellectually stimulating cities in the world, Washington, D.C., exposes journalism students to the intensity of high-level press conferences and media coverage of politics, policy and international affairs as well as immerses students in the rich historical, artistic and cultural tradition of the nation's capital city.

When it comes to providing journalism students with career-building internships, no other venue quite compares with Washington, D.C. That's why the School of Journalism actively participates in Butler's Washington, D.C., Semester Intern Program.

Students who enter the program are able to earn up to 20 Butler University credits through a combination of internship experience and on-site seminars. Journalism majors have completed internships at National Geographic Magazine, National Public Radio, C-SPAN, The Hill congressional newspaper, offices of members of Congress, The White House communications office, MSNBC, Fox News, The Smithsonian and The Newseum.
