For journalism graduate students, one of the major benefits of living in New York City is the wide array of internships at prestigious magazines available throughout the school year. Internships are not required as part of the magazine program, but most students spend at least one semester in an editorial internship, which they can take for credit. NYU has developed strong relationships with editors and reporters at major media outlets and we help our students find placements.

While internship responsibilities vary depending on the publication, students often have the opportunity to write for magazine websites or print editions. Within the past two years, while attending NYU, magazine students have published stories in New York Magazine,  Newsweek, The Daily Beast, The New Yorker, Salon, Esquire, Slate and Patch.

Students in Magazine Writing have recently interned at:  Time, Esquire, Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Sports Illustrated,  Newsweek, Marie Claire, Elle, Allure, Real Simple, Wired,  Field & Stream, Town & Country, People, Good Housekeeping, Teen Vogue, The New York Observer, National Geographic, Newsday, The New York Daily News and Time Out New York.
