The Beyond Barnard Externship Program is an opportunity for current Barnard students to visit the workplace of an alumna match and participate in a job shadowing experience. These one-day experiences, held once in Fall Semester and once in Spring Semester, allow students to get a first-hand look at an organization's culture, along with the day-to-day aspects of a particular industry or position. Most of all, students get the invaluable opportunity to network with enthusiastic alumnae and build connections in their field of interest.

Current Barnard students visit the workplace of their alumna match in the New York Metro Area and participate in a job shadowing experience. In the past, students have had the opportunity to shadow alumnae at companies such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, YouTube, Google, Citigroup, NYC Law Department, and more! This event takes place in both the fall and spring semester. 


  • This program is open to ALL current Barnard students and alumnae
  • The matching will take place on a first come, first serve basis with priority given to Juniors and Seniors
