Experiential learning in the form of internships, student teaching, clinical practice, and service learning are essential components of the student experience at NYU Steinhardt.
The School has an extensive network of experiential learning partners where students gain hands-on practical experience in their field while developing rich ties to the communities they live and study in. Interdisciplinary training to improve the human condition through education, wellness and culture is at the center of the NYU Steinhardt student experience, and it is often at its best in out-of-classroom learning.
