Most Fordham students (81%) complete at least one internship before graduation. Such students engage in experiential learning while building the skills needed to be successful in future endeavors. Internships provide a valuable experience and professional development.
Internships can be paid or for academic credit. Students who have completed 60 credits and maintain a 3.0 GPA are eligible to hold an internship for credit under the direction of a faculty mentor. Below are a few of the exciting internships held by Fordham College at Lincoln Center students:
