Currently accepting applications for the Fall 2023 program.


About the Program

While most fall semester programs are designed for economics concentrators, spring semester programs are open to students from many concentrations and credit in them depends on resident directors' departments or academic programs, and their NYC program themes. In most spring semesters, students pursuing any concentration can apply. To determine what programs or departments students can transfer credits in to count for the concentration, check the semester's dedicated web page.

New York City Program students spend four days a week as interns in a firm or organization for one credit. They attend weekly seminars one morning and evening for two credits and complete an independent project for one credit. Typically, an independent project, a seminar, or both may receive concentration credit in the discipline or program of the director.

Special arrangements for receiving concentration credit may be possible between the New York City Program and the department or program for a student's concentration.
