Interning in Washington, DC while enrolled in the GHD program provides an invaluable opportunity for professional growth and expanding students’ professional networks. Students who intern are able to develop professional skills, enhance their resumes, refine their career objectives, and build on lessons learned in academic coursework. GHD students are required to have at least one internship during their course of study that builds skills and knowledge in their area of specialization. If a student is pursuing more than one thematic area or a regional focus, the department will determine if more than one internship is required to address all aspects of the specialization.
Internships can be:
- for a semester or a year
- with one organization or multiple, depending on a student's area of specialization, thematic focus, and regional interests
- paid or unpaid
