Internships at Pratt are a hands-on educational opportunity designed to provide students experience in and exposure to a typical employment environment. Each institution has a slightly different model for its internship program. At Pratt, students are encouraged to take one or more internships and view these as an integral part of their education. Some departments require their students to participate in an internship for academic credit.

The CCPD also provide guidance for students in identifying internship resources and connecting students with internship employers through networking and recruiting events year-round.
