Course Descriptions

UCDC Program at the University of California Washington Center

The UCDC Program at the UC Washington Center in Washington, D.C., supervises and supports students who pursue academic study and internships in the nation’s capital. The program is open through a competitive application process to students in all majors who will have upper-division status by the quarter in which they participate. (Physical and Biological Sciences and Engineering majors are eligible to participate in their sophomore year with department approval.) Students enroll for fall, winter, or spring quarter, earn 12 to 17 course credits, and continue to be registered as full-time students. Applicant selection is based on academic record, a written statement, letters of recommendation, and in some cases a personal interview. Financial aid eligibility is maintained. 

Students live in the UC Washington Center with students from all UC campuses. This provides an intellectual and social community throughout the quarter.

Interested students with strong academic records are encouraged to apply. For more information, e-mail ucdc@ucsc.edu, contact the UCDC coordinator in 10 Merrill College, or visit the program's web site.
