The Duke in DC program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to live, study, and work in the nation’s capital in the spring of each year. Students engage in seminars and an independent study course to connect policy and theory with the work they are completing in their individual 28-hour/week internships.

Students also take weekly excursions to the capital’s attractions and places that show the “real” side of DC. They are able to connect with Duke alumni as well as prominent policymakers in an intimate setting and learn about their work and lives in Washington.

The Policy Meets World blog is written by students at Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy or taking part in the Duke in DC program. Read their first-person stories about their internship experiences and aspirations.
