SBS in DC is an exciting summer internship program that connects UMass Amherst College of Social & Behavioral Science majors with UMass alumni working in Washington DC. The program has proven to be a stepping stone for students interested in careers in fields like policy, non-profits, international development, strategy, marketing, PR, government, campaign work and more.
Program participants are matched with host internship sites for a 10-week summer internship, participate in a hybrid online/face to face class, and have the opportunity to network with UMass Alumni who are working in the area, all while living together as a cohort in DC, in housing arranged by SBS. Alumni volunteers mentor students at internship sites all over DC.
Students apply for the program during the fall semester, and learn whether they are accepted prior to winter break.
