Grady DC Field Study and Internship Program

Grady DC Field Study and
Internship Program



In addition to Study Abroad opportunities, Grady College offers incredible experiences for students within the US. The Grady DC Field Study and Internship Program is a hybrid of classroom study and experiential learning. Grady DC students are enrolled in a public affairs communications class taught at UGA’s Delta Hall on Capitol Hill and are working at D.C. area internships for course credit to amplify their learning with real-world experiences, mentoring and networking with public affairs communications professionals in the nation’s capital.


Applications open in August of each year. Applications for Summer 2023 are due Thursday, November 10th, 2022.
