“It let me know that there are ways to have a career in social activism…I can say that this is the most I ever learned in one semester of my life.” – student participant
New York Union Semester pairs students with union internships and Labor Studies classes. Dig deep into a movement for worker’s rights and social change this semester!
• Intern four days a week with a union or worker organization in New York City. Students might get experience in research, organizing, public policy, communications, workforce development, and more.
• Enroll in Labor Studies courses at the Murphy Institute and earn a Certificate in Labor Studies from the CUNY School of Professional Studies.
• Take advantage of many networking opportunities in the labor movement and get to know the New York City labor movement from the inside.
• Earn a $7,000 living stipend and scholarship to help cover costs of tuition (all in-state), fees and living expenses.
While we accept applications on a rolling basis, you should submit your application and other application materials by November 10th, if you are applying for the Spring Semester.
