GOTHAM CITY AT OUR FINGERTIPS
Internship provide students with an opportunity to learn-by-doing, develop relevant skills, explore interests, and traverse New York City.
Our student interns can be found all areas of the city, in a variety of industries. Each semester, they complete a rigorous inquiry-based research project and give a public presentation detailing their experiences and learning. Their experiences prepare them for the rigors of college as well as the workforce.
