Do I need work experience?

While work experience is looked upon favorably in the admissions process, it is not a requirement for admission. Professional experience derived from full- and part-time employment as well as internships will enhance an applicant's admissions folder. Prospective students with little work experience will find that the Steinhardt School's opportunities (e.g. internships, independent study, and culminating experiences etc.) will greatly expand their opportunities to develop contacts in their professional field of interest, build their resumes and expand their marketability for the final job search upon graduation.
