Intern at UC Centers in DC or Sacramento
Capital Internships: Earn academic credit and career readiness skills!
Academic internship programs through the UC Center in Sacramento (UCCS) and UC Washington Center (UCDC) provides high-impact experiential learning opportunities beyond the classroom for students to earn academic credit and career readiness skills. Students will grow professionally within their career fields and enhance academic learning. The educational value is exhibited through research, student learning objectives, professional and academic guidance from a faculty advisor and internship site supervisor, and the opportunity to successfully link theoretical knowledge from the classroom to the real-world.
Undergraduate students spend 10 weeks during the summer, fall, winter, or spring quarter. The cost is comparable to a UCR quarter, financial aid applies, and scholarships are available. Students must have a 3.0 GPA and in junior or senior standing and must plan in advance during their sophomore or junior year to ensure the coursework fits their UCR academic plan. Capital internships are open to ALL majors, including arts and STEM majors. Students do not need to be political science or public policy majors, or interested in law or government relations! International, undocumented/AB540/DACA and transfer students are also welcome!
