Discovery Internship’s Day Student Program is a unique way for local residents to get the Discovery Internships experience while commuting from home.
Every summer we have students who commute to internships in New York from New York City, Long Island, Westchester County, Fairfield County, and Northern New Jersey. Day Student participation is limited to permanent residents of the area that live within a one hour commuting distance of New York City. As a day student, in addition to your internship, you will attend our pre-internship orientation, an NYU college credit course, plus our Career Accelerator workshops on the NYU or Emerson campus one evening per week (required). Day students do not participate in the evening and weekend social activities designed for our residential students or receive housing or meals.
Fashion. Finance. PR. Over 25 Industries. You’ll benefit from internship placement by an expert in your industry. We’ll help you secure an exclusive summer internship that matches your interests.
Your Internship Coordinator will help you determine the best internship opportunities for your interests, skills, and goals and then secure your internship with an organization from within our extensive network of internship providers. If accepted, your internship placement is guaranteed.
Discovery Interns receive college credit for completion of coursework designed by NYU faculty specifically for Discovery Internships. You will also develop a polished professional resume that you will create with the assistance of Discovery Internships and your NYU faculty advisor.
