Praktika in German


Bard College Berlin offers advanced students the opportunity to gain practical experience alongside their studies by completing an optional internship. Students have been active in a wide range of fields, including the arts, human rights, publishing, and education. 

About the Internship Program

The internship program comprises two components: the internship and the internship course. The internship provides students with the chance to contribute to an organization’s or individual’s work. The internship course is designed to embed the internship into an academic framework in combination with reflective examination of the role of these organizations and individuals within Berlin and internationally. Students receive academic credit upon successful completion of both the internship and the internship course.

Internship Course

Bard College Berlin assists students in finding an internship placement that matches their qualifications and interests; students can expect to work 10-13 hours per week. Internship placements are competitive, and all students applying for an internship enroll in the internship course during the course registration period. Both components are essential to the internship program.
