Washington, DC Learning Semester
Join students from other universities who are living, learning, and interning in the nation’s capital during the Washington, DC Learning Semester. Students earn Butler credits by taking classes on foreign policy and the history and public art of Washington while engaged in real-life internships with governmental offices and agencies such as Congress, the White House, Israeli Embassy, and the U.S. Attorney General’s Office, as well as with organizations such as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Smithsonian Museums, Amnesty International, Merrill Lynch, Make-A-Wish foundation, and C-SPAN.
Students are recruited each spring for the upcoming academic year, and all juniors and seniors with a minimum GPA of 3.0 are eligible to apply.
Butler’s DC Program offers substantive internships tailored to the academic and career interests of each individual student, and located at a wide variety of companies and organizations.
