The Elon in New York City summer program is a nine-week opportunity for students to take a class and intern in the Big Apple.
Students are enrolled in an exciting 4 hour course - The Streets of New York City. The class engages students to consider the historical, cultural, economic, and social impact of New York City through an experiential educational experience. Faculty and staff members from across campus will instruct the course, take students on behind the scenes tours and experience the streets of NYC.
Opportunities for internships exist across broad areas including, but not limited to: companies and businesses that support all aspects of the arts, such as casting, marketing, public relations, advertising, investments, banking, as well as news and entertainment journalism. We have contacts from decades of successful internship experiences. Hundreds of alumni and Elon parents in Manhattan will mentor students enrolled in the program and provide critical networking and professional advice.
Grades count toward an Elon GPA.
Study USA courses may NOT be taken on an audit or pass/fail basis.
Students will participate in various activities throughout the city including a tour of Manhattan, a Yankees game, a Broadway show, alumni networking events, museum visits, and opportunities to explore food, events, and historical places with various faculty/staff members.
