About UTNY

Out-of-the-box education, career-enhancing internships and curated experiences

UTNY is an internship-first experiential learning program that provides registered UT Austin students the opportunity to live, work and learn in one of the most dynamic metropolitan cities in the world.

Students intern in a field related to their interests and study with UTNY faculty in courses tailored to the New York urban environment. In addition, students are also provided opportunities to network with New York tri-state alumni and industry leaders, as well as take part in numerous self-led activities that will enrich their understanding of New York City throughout the term.

Supported financially by the College of Fine Arts, the College of Liberal Arts, the McCombs Business School, and the Moody College of Communication the program is open to any major on campus.

“The city is like poetry; it compresses all life, all races and breeds, into a small island and adds music and the accompaniment of internal engines.”
