The nation's capital is not only a hub for those interested in government and politics, but also for students seeking a career in business, law, journalism, healthcare, data science, engineering, higher education and the arts, to name a few. Through Baylor in Washington's network and resources, Baylor students who work and study in D.C. will have exposure to key people, ideas, and institutions that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
We offer two programs for undergraduate students:
The Washington Semester Program brings students to D.C. for a fall or spring semester to work full-time at an internship and receive a full semester of course credit. Students gain full-time work experience while also participating in an evening policy class featuring guest lecturers from various sectors in D.C. and completing an independent research project.
The Summer Fellowship for Religion and Social Life is a two month summer intensive in D.C. for students to explore the social benefits of religious communities through seminars and part-time internship work. Spiritual formation and professional development prepares students for a life of service and leadership.
