Welcome to the UC Davis Washington Program!

UC Davis students are strongly encouraged to supplement their undergraduate education with real world, hands-on experiences through internships.  The Washington Program offers eligible undergraduate students an exciting opportunity to combine course work, exciting field research and unparalleled internship experience during a quarter's residence in our nation's capital. Students from any major have the opportunity to gain valuable on-the-job experience with professionals and experts in fields that interest them. From NASA, to the Nation Institutes of Health, to the Smithsonian, to the Capitol, students have the chance to test drive a career, build their portfolio or resume, and make valuable industry contacts that can be essential to landing the ideal job upon graduation. In today’s competitive job market, it's what you know and who you know that often makes the difference.

Students live at the UC Washington Center, nestled in a beautiful shaded neighborhood close to DuPont Circle - 6 blocks from the White House - which is served by an efficient public transportation system and subway system.
