Newhouse NYC is a one-semester program that allows you to intern for a prestigious media company while taking specialized coursework in New York City. The program is open to all Newhouse juniors and seniors.

Your Newhouse NYC experience will be built around an 18- to 24-hour-per-week internship matched to your interests and abilities. In the evenings, you will take classes at the Fisher Center, Syracuse University’s academic space in midtown Manhattan. Courses feature guest speakers from various companies including NBC, the New York Times, Facebook/Instagram, TikTok, Spotify, and more. 

Throughout the semester, you will engage with an extensive network of accomplished professionals and talented alumni—many of whom occupy pivotal roles in the media industry. You will also be paired with a Newhouse mentor for the semester. Our goal is for you to network with as many people as possible since a career in the communications industry is often about connecting with those you know.

Spending your fall or spring semester in the city allows you to gain experience, make connections, build a more competitive resume and test-run what it’s truly like to live and work in New York. 


Students participating in internships with external companies/organizations must comply with all health and safety rules, including those related to COVID-19 prevention, set by the external companies/organizations. For example, external companies/organizations may have different masking or vaccination rules than the University, including in some instances stricter rules, and students must comply with those rules, in addition to the Syracuse University rules. 

Failure to comply with a company/organization’s health and safety rules may prevent a particular placement or result in the loss of a placement.  If you have any questions about requirements for companies/organizations, please let us know.
