The Washington Study Program provides students with the opportunity to complete a full-time, research-intensive internship in Washington, D.C. By participating in a semester-length program during the fall or spring (), students earn 9 credit hours; for a summer internship (), they earn 3 credit hours. In addition, students earn 3 credit hours by developing a portfolio based on their internship experiences (). The credits earned can be counted as general electives or applied to a student’s major or minor, with the prior consent of the individual department(s). Finally, as part of the Washington Study Program, students participate in a seminar and attend a weekly lecture/discussion group ().

To be eligible for the program, a student is expected to be a junior or senior and have at least a 3.000 GPA. The program director, the student’s major advisor, and the appropriate dean must approve each application. Students must ensure that their participation will not prevent them from meeting on-campus residency or other university requirements.
