Program Fees:

Because of its proximity to Philadelphia and a classes that meet all day on Saturday for the duration of the summer, the NYC program allows for a great deal of flexibility for students to choose where they want to live and whether or not they are interested in interning or completing an independent project for the experience course.  Internships in New York City are extremely competitive, especially during the summer when it seems that the best and brightest from around the world convene in the city that never sleeps for internships.  If you are interested in interning in NYC, it is strongly recommended that you apply for the program as early as possible during the Fall semester so that you can begin the internship search process immediately after enrolling in the program.

Students must either find their own housing in New York, or commute from surrounding areas (including Philadelphia).
