Belmont East - NYC

Belmont East Internship Program: New York City

Belmont East pairs academic and experiential learning with an internship in the heart of New York City. You will complete general education and major specific courses while working at your internship and living in New York City for a semester. Courses are taught by Belmont University faculty and local industry professionals serving as adjunct faculty.

Program Curriculum

You will take three to four courses concurrently with your internship. A selection of Belmont courses will be available online and/or onsite, including: Third Year Writing, Junior Cornerstone, Internship and a selection of courses in your major or for BELL Core/General Education credit.

Internships

Internships are required. You may work up to full-time hours with your internship while attending academic classes at night or online. It is your responsibility to secure the internship. There are many resources on campus to assist with that process, including the internship coordinator for your college and Belmont's Office of Career and Professional Development.

Housing
You will be housed with 1-2 other Belmont students at Educational Housing Services at St. George Towers in Brooklyn, NY. You can expect this space to be similar to a dorm room with an ensuite bathroom and minimal closet space. Each room has a small refrigerator and microwave. The rooms and bathrooms are unfurnished, so you will need to bring sheets, blankets, towels, etc. You'll have access to a shared kitchen, study room, screening room, pool, table, and membership to the Eastern Athletic Club (next door). For more information and photos, click the link above.
Transportation
You will use the NYC Public Transportation System. Living at the St. George Towers, you will be within a 5 minute walk to subway lines A, C, 2, and 3 and just one stop away from Manhattan. (You are prohibited from bringing a car.)

Past students have suggested using the app 'City Mapper' as a NYC transit resource.

Belmont East Program Staff

Belmont East is administered by staff in both Nashville and New York City. In Nashville, the Belmont USA Program Coordinator manages the application and pre-departure processes and communicates with all students prior to their arrival in New York City.
