Real World Experience

Through its internship program, the Media & Communications program places students at newspapers, magazines, television outlets, and radio stations where they apply techniques and concepts learned in the classroom in the real-world media environment.

With the College's proximity to Long Island's commercial centers and metropolitan New York City, students have the advantage of identifying the experience that best suits their talents and goals. Here's just a short list of some of the places where Old Westbury Media & Communications students have recently interned:

  • ABC News, New York, N.Y.
  • Anton Community Newspapers, Mineola, N.Y.
  • Automobile Club of New York, Garden City, N.Y.
  • Fox News Channel, New York, N.Y.
  • MTV, New York, N.Y.
  • MWW Group, New York, N.Y.
  • New York Mets, Flushing, N.Y.
  • News 12 Long Island, Bethpage, N.Y.
  • Newsday, Melville, N.Y.
  • Sony Music Distribution, New York, N.Y.
  • Suffolk Life Newspapers, Riverhead, N.Y.
