NEW – Internship Option for Credit

The New York Studio Residency Program welcomes students who are pursuing a single semester internship in New York City. The student profile best suited for internships include fine arts, curatorial practice, photography, fashion, illustration, and film majors. The internship option is offered at the NYSRP as part of a 16 credit full semester workload. The home school is responsible for setting up and confirming the internship with the student. The NYSRP will provide a list of internship resources available in New York and assist in monitoring student internship progress.

Confirmation of the internship must be submitted along with the application. Students whose Internship placement falls through for any reason after enrollment will be switched to the regular NYSRP program.

The registration for students pursuing an internship will be as follows:
-3 credit Internship
-7 credit Independent Studio & Critique Sessions
-3 credit Contemporary Art Seminar
-3 credit Critical Seminar and Visiting Artist Program

Internship students will not be expected to complete the full 20 hours per week required for independent studio practice, but will still be expected to participate in the end-of-semester exhibition. Typically, a 120 hour unpaid internship requirement can be fulfilled with 8 hours of scheduled internship time over the course of 16 weeks at the NYSRP. A 200 hour paid internship can also be accomplished with 12.5 hours per week.

Students must complete all home school internship requirements including specified hours, observations, and/or documentation. The NYSRP will monitor internship progress with bi-weekly check-ins. Students are expected to schedule their internship hours on Mondays, Thursdays, and, if necessary, Fridays may be accommodated.
