Internships & Service Learning

The New York area is unsurpassed in the variety of organizations and resources available to students who wish to learn through an internship. Students work closely with a faculty advisor who is chosen for her/his expertise and knowledge of the internship organization. Since there is no language barrier and New York contains an abundance of organizations and institutes, this gives students the chance to put their studies and interests in context to a real-life working situation.
