Grady @ DC

Grady@DC is a new Washington, D.C. program that is a hybrid of classroom study and experiential learning. Grady@DC students are enrolled in a public affairs communications class taught at UGA’s new Delta Hall on Capitol Hill and work at D.C.-area internships for course credit to amplify their learning with real-world experiences, mentoring and networking.

Her career spans the U.S. Congress, the White House, two international PR firms and her own company.
