Completing an internship as part of your undergraduate education is a great way to apply what you have learned in your classes to a real-world setting. It is also an opportunity to begin building a network with professionals and open up your options for employment after college.

Internships have been cited as the number one way for companies/organizations to recruit college graduates. They are also an outstanding career counseling tool and can help students figure out what they want to do and as well what they do not want to do post-college. Students who successfully complete internships are better positioned to find permanent employment in this challenging job market. 

Internships are a great way to build a resume and develop the necessary skills for professional achievement after college. The College has two academic internship programs: Off-Campus Internships and On-Campus Internships. 

Off-Campus Internships

Marymount Manhattan’s External Internship Program allows students to earn academic credit for their internship at an external company or organization. Students can apply to receive credit for their external internships during the Fall, January, Spring, and Summer semesters. The information below provides resources for finding internships as well as the requirements to receive credit, an outline of the application process, and how to access the online application. 


Click on the blue button below to complete the application to receive credit for your Off-Campus Internship. Once the application is filled out, the application will be reviewed by the Office of Career and Professional Development. You will receive an email to make an appointment via MMC Career Connection with Ryan Atwell to discuss the internship process and protocol. Please use the MMC Career Connection link in the email to schedule this appointment. You must schedule a meeting in order for your application to be approved and added to your schedule.

Please note that January and Summer Session for-credit internships are NOT covered by financial aid or scholarships and are NOT included in regular tuition. There is an additional cost for internships during January and Summer sessions.

Upcoming Deadlines:

On-Campus Internships

On-Campus Internships provide educational and experiential opportunities for students to receive hands-on, pre-professional experiences supporting a variety of projects and initiatives in both academic and non-academic divisions and departments across the College. These 1-credit internships provide a valuable tool for students early in their academic careers to build both technical and interpersonal skills in order to prepare them to pursue external internships and job opportunities both during and after college. In addition to learning valuable skillsets from across the range of professional work done within a higher education context, these on-campus internships allow students to make an impact on the College community and to find their unique place at MMC.
