Internships

Get out of the classroom and into the community!  Internships help students immerse in Czech culture, make life-long connections, and gain invaluable hands-on professional experience. 

NYU Prague offers two distinct internship programs: for-credit and non-credit.  To compare these two programs, review the following chart.  If you are interested in learning more about non-credit internships, click here.


Academic Internships  

Students in the NYU Prague Academic Internship Program learn about Czech culture and professional life through internship placements in a wide range of industries.  This for-credit program includes two components:

  1. Guaranteed (minimum 16hr/week) internship placement
  2. Participation in the Internship Seminar and Fieldwork course

In order to enroll in this program, students must participate in a competitive application process.  Successful applicants are typically adaptable, flexible, goal-oriented, and open-minded.   

While there is no cost to participate in the Academic Internship Program, students that participate are subject to a financial penalty should they withdraw from the program.

If you are interested in participating in this program in the Fall 2017 semester, please join us for an information session on Tuesday, February 7 at Noon at the Wasserman Center Presentation Room B.  RSVP via NYU CareerNet!  All questions may be directed to global.internships@nyu.edu.


Internship Placements

NYU has partnered with EUSA, a non-profit organization, to identify custom placements for students in the academic internship program.  Unlike a traditional internship search, where students as job seekers are applying directly to organizations and weighing opportunities, EUSA conducts this entire process on participants' behalves.  EUSA weighs opportunities based on students' academic and professional goals, resulting in one placement.

Internship opportunities vary semester by semester; therefore, no specific placement list is available.  Placement opportunities reflect trends in the context of the Czech job market.  Some sample placement industries include: Business, Education, Film, Journalism, Law, Music, Politics, Theater, and more.  If you do not see your industry of interest or have questions, email global.internships@nyu.edu.
