Students with a range of academic and career interests recently interned at firms, organizations, and institutions such as the Metropolitan Opera, Miramax, Empire State Development Corporation, New York Lawyers in the Public Interest, ABC News, Merrill Lynch, Council on Foreign Relations and National Geographic. Those are only a few of more than 150 internships on a growing list of sponsors.

Special Note Regarding Vaccinations and the COVID-19 Pandemic:
Hamilton College is requiring all students to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 prior to arriving on campus in fall 2021, working on campus during summer 2021, or participating in Hamilton study away programs including Hamilton’s New York City Program. The College believes this policy is the best way to resume a full range of activities while protecting the health and safety of our students and the communities in which we operate. Some students may be eligible for — and will need to show documentation of — religious or medical exceptions, but the New York City Program hopes to achieve 100 percent compliance with this vaccination requirement. Moreover, for the New York City Program, in-person internships and many of our integral cultural and theme-related activities are likely to require proof of vaccination or proof of a very recent negative COVID-19 test. Hamilton’s policy is in place notwithstanding changes in local, state, or federal health regulations.
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 either the independent project or 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 NYC Program and the department or program of a student's concentration.
