Pepperdine is a Christian University, committed to preparing students for lives of service, purpose and leadership. To that end, our program seeks to provide participants with real-world experience in settings where they can develop a commitment to service, a life of purpose and a vision for leadership.
Students gain work experience through a paid or unpaid internship while gaining academic credit from Pepperdine University. In addition, students are able to enroll in afternoon or evening courses and are expected to work between 32 and 40 hours at their respected internship.
We urge all employers to learn about the Washington, D.C. Program and discover the opportunities available to our students and your organization.
Program participants represent all majors and have many different educational emphases. Therefore, we look for well-rounded internships that will best suit our students and allow them to develop multiple skills.
