From Professor Holoviak, Kutztown University The Harrisburg Internship Semester (THIS) Coordinator:
The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) sponsors a semester-long internship program for outstanding undergraduate students from the 14 PASSHE universities. These interns work with selected professionals and legislators in various state government offices. Many interns have accepted policy or research positions in state government upon graduation. Interns are appointed and serve for one regular semester (either fall or spring). Interns participate directly in public policy formulation, analysis, and evaluation. Their work experience includes report and speech writing, research, and direct involvement with program initiation, implementation, and evaluation. The internship program provides students with a meaningful professional assignment as well as an enriching academic experience.
This is a paid internship which includes 15 credits of internship and seminar credits. The application deadline for Spring 2012 internships is Friday, October 7.
