Internships and Experiential Learning

The Borough of Manhattan Community College supports and strongly encourages every student to pursue and complete at least one type of approved Experiential Learning Opportunity (ELO) prior to completion of study.

There are a wide variety of opportunities to choose from:

  • Academic and Independent Internships
  • Student Leadership
  • Community Service
  • Global Experiences
  • Service Learning
  • Research
  • Externships
  • Clinical Preparation/ Field Experience/ Practicum
  • Student Employment

Experiential learning allows students to apply knowledge gained and produce evidentiary skills and outcomes to better understand the global job market and transfer to the next destination, whether that be workforce or degree program.

Learn more about ways to deepen understanding, engage with the community and apply your BMCC education through the Office of Experiential Learning and Internships.

Experiential learning consists of BMCC approved activities which develop, enhance and build upon academic knowledge, skills and values. Activities can be in the classroom, co-curricular, in the workplace setting and through community engagement. Experiential learning is hands-on and allows students to practice, implement and experiment and is carefully supported through reflection, critical analysis and synthesis.  Information for fall 2016 subject to change, please contact Director of the Office of Internships and Experiential Learning with questions or concerns.
