ICNYC for H&S
School of Humanities & Sciences students can participate in the New York City Internship Program (offered fall and spring semesters), which is the core of the College’s presence in New York City. All juniors and seniors, regardless of major, are invited to apply. Second-semester sophomores will be considered if it makes academic sense.
Students have several options available to them when they study in NYC.
The Internship Program
- Students are required to enroll in one 6-credit internship or two 3-credit internships. In some instances it may be appropriate for a student to complete one 3-credit internship instead of 6 credits. Students should consult Amanda L. Lippincott if they are interested in this option.
- Students are required to enroll in additional credits to maintain full-time status. The tentative course offerings are available online.
- Students are required to participate in the Internship Seminar.
Independent Study, Fieldwork, or Research
- Students have the option to complete an independent study, fieldwork, or research opportunity.
- Students will need to complete the necessary steps for an individualized study opportunity in H&S, additional information is available online.
- In some instances it may be appropriate for a student to complete an individualized study option instead of an internship. Students should consult Amanda L. Lippincott if they are interested in this option.
All ICNYC participants are required to be full-time students; that is, they must be enrolled at Ithaca College for a minimum of 12 credits.
School of Humanities and Sciences students should anticipate registering for at least 3 credits of internship (up to 9 credits). Students have the option to complete a combination of Ithaca College courses (online and in NYC), an internship(s), and/or an independent study for at least 12 credits (no more than 18 credits) while part of the ICNYC program.
Students interested in applying for the New York City Internship Program do so in keeping with the internship application process for their school after having met with the academic adviser for their major. More information may be found at the ICNYC website.
