CU in D.C. is the University of Colorado Boulder program that offers CU undergraduate students an internship and coursework experience in Washington D.C. for a semester or for a summer.  Students put classroom learning into real world action and earn full academic credit for the experience. 

CMCI students who want to participate in CU in D.C. can participate in a specialized CU in D.C. Media-Track that focuses on media-related disciplines.  CU in D.C. collaborates with the Washington Media Institute (WMI) in D.C. to deliver the Media-Track offering to students. WMI bridges the gap between the information taught in traditional media classes and the skills students need to succeed in the real professional world.  Through weekly classes, networking opportunities, and internships, WMI prepares participants for careers in media and develops them into dynamic and marketable media professionals.
