Baylor Communication in New York is the flagship program in a unique, innovative effort to bridge the gap between the academic and professional worlds. Baylor students can expect an immersive educational experience in the heart of America's cultural capital, New York City. Classes and internships are designed to complement one another, giving intellectual foundation to the workplace and immediate, practical extension to the classroom. The topics of discussion focus on various aspects of communication and contemporary urban life, and the teaching is designed with the city as a resource: discussions of art paired with trips to world-class museums, discussions of communication and architecture as students walk through the city, discussions of media from within NBC studios, etc. In short, the mission of the program is to raise up young men and women with a rich, informed view of the culture in which they live, and a strong sense of their own personal, redemptive callings within it. We believe this mission to be an extension of the Baylor University Mission Statement.
Students spend a whole semester in New York City, and receive a full course load of credit!
- 3 hrs. Internship Credit with a New York City company/organization. (Previous Baylor interns have worked for ESPN, NBC, MTV, VH-1, American Movie Classics, and many other nationally-known employers; many were given job offers!)
