Students also receive credit for internship or fieldwork in a real world setting. Learning is documented through a Constructive Action, a real-world improvement project at an organization. MCNY students not only use the Constructive Action to document learning, but some students have started non-profit agencies, NGO's and for-profit businesses with their CA projects. This demonstrates the College's mission of fostering personal and professional development, empowering students to lead, promote social justice and encouraging positive change in the workplaces and community.
