CUNY Cultural Corp Applications for 2021-2022 are now open/These are paid, 1 year internships

Dear COMD students,

The CUNY Cultural Corp Applications are now Open for Next year. The application and information about his eligibility can be found on the Culture Corp Website at https://www1.cuny.edu/sites/culturalcorps/.

Click here to learn more about eligibility requirements for this paid, one year commitment to work for a cultural institution. Click here for the application link. These internships can be used for COMD 4900, our 3 credit internship class. But because they are paid, you do not have to be enrolled in COMD 4900 to do this internship and they are great experience for a competitive internship later on if you are a sophomore who already has a portfolio and resume ready.

If you start the internship in Fall of 2021, because this is a year commitment, you could enroll in the Spring 2022 internship and this would count for that class. You could also enroll in the Fall 2021 internship COMD 4900 and the internship would count for your 3 credits but you do have to continue in the internship in the Spring of 2022/. Any questions, email me at tgoetz@citytech.cuny,edu.
