The Marist in Manhattan Program, now in its 9th year, offers undergraduate students a rigorous full-time semester-long study/internship in the media capital of the U.S.  This program was specifically created for undergraduate students and only operates during the Fall & Spring semesters.  Students are enrolled in a 400+ hour internship and also take two 3-credit online courses.

Marist in Manhattan Program features personalized internship placement to ensure a strong match between student and site.  Internships will commit students to spending 4 days of full-time work each week for 12 or more weeks in a professional environment.  Faculty members conduct personal site visits.  Sites are selected from leading media companies where students will be welcomed and challenged.  Previous internship sites have included:
