Summer Internship Program
Undergraduate students may take advantage of Paris's vibrant science and tech sectors through an internship and complementary seminar. Students will intern 4-5 days per week, and participate in class one evening per week to help contextualize the work from their placement. Readings will help students understand the world of work in this sector, and reflection will help students situate their academic and professional development.
Students who are admitted to this program will be responsible for finding their own internships. Prospective and admitted students are encouraged to use the Wasserman Career Center's resources, including Handshake, to find internships. It is expected that students be mindful of the language requirements for the opportunities pursued. English-language internships may be limited at best.
Students must have their internship offers in hand by April 15th, 2020. All internships must end by July 17 to coincide with the last day of the program.
Students must complete an agreement called a convention de stage in order to participate in an internship placement in France. The agreement is signed by the student, New York University Paris (the legal representative of the university in France), and organization hosting the internship placement. NYU will only facilitate the signing of a convention de stage for students enrolled in the Tandon Global Internship (This is what Tandon named the summer course) course at NYU Paris.
For those students who require a visa to enter France, a convention de stage must be completed prior to the visa appointment. April 15th is the deadline for submitting a convention de stage, completed by your internship site for NYU's review and signature. This ensures completion prior to your visa appointment.

Internship Seminar and Fieldwork: Data Analytics with Applications to Arts, Research and Development - course description
This course, which is required for all students undertaking an internship for credit at NYU’s study away sites, has two goals. First, it provides an opportunity for students to integrate their internship experience with relevant academic research and debates. Second, the course helps students learn and enhance professional skills—including writing, communication, and presentation skills—needed for future work experiences and academic study.
As the academic component of the internship experience, this course helps students reflect critically on their internships as a way to further their individual academic and professional goals. This includes evaluating various aspects of the internship site, such as its mission, approach, policies, and the local, regional and international contexts in which it operates. Students will be challenged to think analytically about their internships and host organizations and to connect their internship experiences to past and present academic work. Students will be graded on the academic work produced in this course.
