Undergraduate students may take advantage of Tel Aviv's vibrant science and tech sectors through an internship and complementary seminar. Students will intern 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 work with the Tel Aviv site staff for placement in an internship opportunity as closely related to preferences as possible. Please see the Tel Aviv Internship website for more information on sample internship sites.

CP-UY 2302 Internship Seminar and Fieldwork - 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.
