    Internships and civic engagement are invaluable components of the undergraduate liberal arts program of Eugene Lang College. Student interns receive professional guidance, gain hands-on experience, develop confidence, and establish an expansive network of professional contacts. Internships for liberal arts majors are available for academic credit in almost every field, including:

    • Publishing
    • Politics
    • Health care
    • The arts
    • Broadcasting
    • Music
    • Media technology
    • Nonprofit administration
    • Environmental activism

    These are just a few of the fields in which our students commonly intern. Specific placements include jobs for liberal arts majors at MTV, HBO, Beth Israel Hospital, the Village Voice, Sony Entertainment, GMHC, Miramax Films, and the ACLU. In addition, the Tishman Environmental Merit Scholars Program offers a sponsored 12-week summer internship in Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.
