The Citadel in NYC

Citadel-in-NYC5*NEW* for Summer 2016

The Citadel is launching a new summer opportunity for students to live, intern, and study in New York City!

The Citadel in NYC program will run nine weeks starting in June 2016. (Saturday, June 4 - Friday, August 5).

The program, open to all majors, will have an inaugural class of 15 - 20 students. Students will live together, take a classes on Mondays, experience the city, and have meaningful interships the remainder of the week.

Students will earn six hours of credit: three credit hours of internship credit and three hours of elective credit for classes conducted each Monday.

Opportunities for internships will exist with a variety of companies and organizations. Many of them provided by Citadel alumni or friends of The Citadel. Security clearances and other requirements may apply.

All students participanting in The Citadel in NYC program will be required to live in housing contracted by The Citadel. We currently plan for NYC students to live in student housing at the New School in the Chelsea area of the city.

Students participating will have regularly scheduled activities, such as Ellis Island, Yankee Stadium, July 4th celebrations, and the local theaters.

Students will also engage with a local mentor, typically a Citadel graduate who can share their professional experience and describe what life is like working in the City.


Example Course Name and Number

New York City Between the Wars
Instructors: Cindy Bolt, Jack Porter, Tiffany Silverman, Career Services
Class Time: Monday - Friday, 3 credit hours course + 3 credit hours internship

With New York City as the student’s backdrop, this interdisciplinary seminar is designed to engage students in a deep understanding of the intersection of business, culture and politics during the crucial interwar period. Each Monday, students will partner with faculty to explore the NYC landmarks and historic sites at the center of this era, looking to the past to see how it has shaped the present. Instructors will approach the city from a variety of perspectives and disciplines, incorporating concepts of ethics, leadership, and critical thinking. From Tuesday through Friday, internships in diverse fields will complement the academic knowledge with professional experiences. A comprehensive paper and presentation will tie all of these efforts together over the nine week period. Co-taught by faculty from business, political science, fine arts, and career services, the course satisfies 3 upper-level elective credit hours towards these majors/minors or 3 general elective credit hours for non-majors plus 3 credit hours for the internship.
