Newhouse DC Internships

Learn entry-level skills, experience professional environments, make connections and develop tools that will enhance your career as a young professional. 

Your Newhouse DC experience will be built around a 20–25 hour weekly internship matched to your interests and abilities. Newhouse DC staff is dedicated to partnering with each student to secure an internship. Before the start of the semester, you will meet with the program director to discuss your career goals, skillset, and potential internship opportunities. 

Past students have excelled in internships at companies including:, the DC Public Defenders Office, Grassroots Analytics, Senators Coon and Warren, C-SPAN, Van Scoyoc Associates and Pro Sports Outlook. 


Students participating in internships must comply with all health and safety rules set by external companies and/or organizations they work for.  Failure to comply with a company or organization’s health and safety rules could result in the student being ineligible for the position and loss of a job offer.
