Newhouse DC

Experience what it’s like to live, learn and work at the nerve center of American democracy.

The one-semester Newhouse DC program offers a unique opportunity to pursue your education and professional development in our nation’s capital.

You’ll gain hands-on professional experience as an intern at a top-level media company, take classes and build your network by engaging with accomplished professionals, many of them alumni who hold top roles in the communications industry. You will also meet industry professionals as part of your coursework.

Mentorship is a key element of the program. As a Newhouse DC student, you will be paired with a mentor—typically a Syracuse University alumnus working in your field of interest. Your mentor will meet with you a few times during the semester to offer career advice and help you adjust to life in the city. You will get to see firsthand how the “Newhouse Network”—the Newhouse School’s famed group of highly successful alumni—is a very real and powerful resource.
