Internships

Gain valuable real-world experience by interning at one of the many New York-area libraries and information organizations that partner with St. John’s.

Whether you choose to intern at an academic, public, special or school library — or at another information-driven organization — you’ll grow personally and professionally through the practical, on-site application of your skills.

Internships are unpaid and must be completed under the supervision of a professional and credentialed librarian. The number of credits for the internship can vary up to three credits depending on the student’s program of study and host site’s requirements.

Applying To Be a Host Site

St. John’s University is always seeking internship host sites that can provide meaningful internship opportunities. Each organization must complete an Application to Host Intern Form and submit to the Division office.

For the School Library Media program, host schools must have a professional on staff (NY State certified school library media specialist) with appropriate qualifications to supervise the intern. In addition, the intern’s work must meet the learning objectives of the Intern and the Division.
