University of California Washington Center (UCDC)


UCDC is an academic program created in 1997 for the purpose of providing students the opportunity to continue their studies while interning in Washington, D.C. Moreover, the availability of a credit-based research seminar that satisfies upper division course requirements for a number of majors affords students the opportunity to reflect on their intern experiences in an academic exercise. Offered during academic semesters, students enroll in classes while working 32 hours per week in internship placements. UCDC is a residential program with apartments at the centrally-located UC Washington Center. Not only does this facilitate relocating temporarily in the nation’s capital, the Center offers students a rich exposure to the Washington community through tours and an evening speaker series.
