The CCPD supports students in gaining hands-on professional experience interning at companies such as Marvel Comics, BBDO, Fox Business, Viacom/MTV and many, many more.

What is an internship?
Internships are learning experiences in the workplace that relate to a student’s major or professional pursuits. Interns are able to take the skills and theories learned in the classroom and apply them to real-life work experience. Students have the opportunity to learn new skills and concepts from professionals in the field and to test career goals before they graduate.
Internships allow students to develop a professional network of contacts and build relationships in the field, which will serve them well as emerging professionals. There are some key components to a Pratt Internship:
- The experience is a full semester
- The experience can be paid or unpaid
- Internships are available to all domestic, international and transfer students
- Internship credits vary from 0 – 3 credits based on student need, number of hours worked, and individual department policies
- To obtain academic credit for an internship students must be enrolled in an internship course at the same time they are participating in the internship
Students are encouraged to attend one of the internship information sessions offered throughout the year in the Center for Career & Professional Development to learn more about the internship program, how to begin an internship search and departmental eligibility information.
The CCPD welcomes your questions. To make an appointment or to find out the dates for the next internship information session, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 718-636-3506.
