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 in a double or triple room with other Belmont students at FOUND Study in the beautiful neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, NY. You can expect this space to be similar to a dorm room with an ensuite bathroom, desk, closet space, and a kitchenette. The rooms and bathrooms are unfurnished, so you will need to bring XL twin sheets, blankets, towels, lamps, iron, hangers, cooking utensils, etc. You'll have access to a shared large kitchen, study lounge, media/game room, 24-hour fitness center, and laundry rooms. For more information and photos, click the link above.

Transportation

You will use the NYC Public Transportation System. Living at FOUND study, you will be within a 5-minute walk to Clark St. Station and High St. Brooklyn Bridge station, with access to the A, C, 2, and 3 lines, 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. In New York City, the Belmont East Onsite Administrator coordinates move-in and mentors you through your internship experience.
