NYC Experience/Internships

Students are required to complete an internship or experience for credit at an institution, organization or company related to their field of study.  The course allows students to gain and reflect on experience with New York City-based organizations.

Students undertake a summer-long internship or experience that directly furthers their practical knowledge of public communication, public relations or organizational leadership. Students will be supervised and graded by the internship coordinator or other suitable faculty member. The final grade is based on work journals, a final paper, attendance at meetings, the supervisor’s report, and a portfolio of all work created during the experience.
