Affiliations with Graduate Schools

At STAC, we not only offer our own suite of graduate programs, but also partner with other colleges and universities to help our students transition into the graduate school of their choice. For example, you can major in Psychology at STAC and begin taking courses at NYU's School of Social Work in your senior year (while paying our affordable tuition, by the way), or you can begin any of the dozens of graduate programs that we have affiliations with at other schools that lead to the same great plan—two degrees in less time and for less money! In alliance with St. John’s University, we also offer a Master’s in Public Health and a Master of Professional Studies degree in Sport Management.

Internship Opportunities

Learning happens in many places—sometimes it’s in a classroom but other times it’s on guided trips to prisons and crime labs for Criminal Justice majors, to Wall Street for Finance and Business majors, or to local classrooms for Education majors. These are just a few of the opportunities we offer our students. We can get you set up with internships in every major we offer and in all programs of study, at CNBC, WCBS, the FBI, the NYSE, and many more organizations. Our location near New York City and Newark, NJ is perfect for finding internship and job opportunities.

Want to complete your internship outside of the area? How would you like to get paid to go to Walt Disney World? No matter your major, we can set you up for an internship. During the semester, you’ll take two classes at Disney’s famous Education Connection. You’ll return to campus with invaluable experience and academic credit!
