Internships

Guidelines and Resources

Whether you're seeking your first job or trying to explore a career change, internships can be a valuable way to gain experience and make career decisions. Some internships may be unpaid, eligible for a small stipend, transportation reimbursements, etc. Others may pay an hourly rate. Career Services can help you determine the overall value of an internship and support you in your search. The CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) does offer the option of internships for credit in some circumstances, so please contact the Career Services office at career.services@sps.cuny.edu for more information.
