Internships and Work Programs

  • Students often have opportunities to work with area firms in internship positions, either during the academic year or during the summer.

    Internships are a field-based extension of classroom learning allowing students to put theory and methods into practice, to gain valuable skills and experience and to assist in clarifying career goals. The ideal internship is a full-time paid position during the summer months since a more regular schedule allows a student to take on greater responsibility and more meaningful projects. In the past, a number of internship opportunities placements have taken place within both the public and private sector including:

    • Erie County Department of Health

    • PA Department of Environmental Protection
    • PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources
