The Baruch College Faculty Handbook


Last updated on 1/29/2015

Baruch College offers a wide-variety of internship possibilities to both undergraduates and graduate students. Internships are short-term employment opportunities (paid or unpaid, for academic credit or not) that allow students to combine classroom learning with hands-on work experience. Internships may lead to long-term employment, either at the company/organization where the internship takes place or through connections developed there.

See the Internship Faculty Discussion Group in Blackboard, for an interactive discussion forum for faculty and staff involved in the teaching and administration of internship courses and programs.

Many undergraduate internships are administrated through the Career Development Center (Vertical Campus; Room 2-150; 646-312-4670), but some are administered by academic departments. Questions about internships are addressed at the Career Development Center, which is reached from the Baruch homepage by following the link under "Student Life," or by going directly to:
