All NMDD majors are required to complete at least one internship during the course of their undergraduate careers. Our unique location in the heart of Manhattan allows us to build bridges with a wide range of organizations across myriad sectors of the local economy, placing our students in digital divisions of major corporations, start-ups, non-profit organizations, and city offices.
Students may complete the internship requirement either during the school term or during the summer. In combination with the internship itself, they enroll in our Internship Seminar, a weekly workshop designed to link the collective classroom with students' internship experiences. The Seminar aims to expand their understanding of lessons learned on the job, helping them to rcognize and analyze valuable experiences, identify and connect with potential mentors, and better understand the complex dynamics of the creative workplace and the ever-evolving digital field.
NMDD works closely with Fordham Career Services to help students secure appropriate internships and to facilitate eventual job placement.
