How it Works

Academic internships are available to undergraduates and graduate students. Before applying to an internship program, you will be required to meet with your academic advisor to review prerequisites and other qualifications. You will also be required to meet with the CityU Career Center staff for a skills assessment and to help find the right internship for you.

Internship Hours

Undergraduates are required to intern 150 hours or approximately 15 hours per week and will be awarded five quarter-hour credits upon successful completion.

Graduate students are required to intern 90 hours or nine hours per week and will be awarded three quarter-hour credits upon successful completion.

Availability
Internships are available each quarter. The specific days and hours will be arranged based on the needs of the host organization.
