What I'm talking about are our New York City and Washington D.C. internship programs. With these programs, you get to choose between the capital of the Leader of the Free World and the Media Capital of the World. Not necessarily the capitals of espresso and lounging by the Seine, but still not bad.

About the Washington DC Program
The Missouri School of Journalism's Washington Program offers both undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to spend a semester in one of the media and political world capitals. Washington D.C. is a city of neighborhoods. It boasts a robust public transportation system, anchored by the Metro. Getting around the city is quite easy, and students will interact with other interns and young professionals from around the U.S. and the world. The vibe of Washington is young and purposed. From the imposing government buildings dotting the Hill, to the cobblestone streets and high-end boutiques of Georgetown, Washington truly is a fascinating city. Students will discover its first-rate restaurants, nightclubs, shopping, museums, and dialog.
