List College Internships and Fellowships

JTS's Albert A. List College of Jewish Studies is dedicated to providing students a wide variety of internship opportunities so that you have the best possible preparation for a career and life after college. Through on-the-job training and experience, internships can help you develop practical skills, expand your résumé, and create opportunities to establish a professional network. 

Internships originate from academic departments at JTS, Columbia University, and Barnard College. The centers for career development at Barnard and Columbia can also work closely with you to provide a wide range of services. Our offices work in tandem to provide essential information on internship/job opportunities, on-campus recruiting, and career fairs.
