Applications are now being accepted for The Harrisburg Internship Semester (THIS) for Fall 2017.
The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE)
sponsors a semester-long internship program for outstanding
undergraduate students from the 14 PASSHE universities. Interns are appointed and
serve for one regular semester (either fall or spring). The internship
program provides students with a meaningful professional assignment as
well as an enriching academic experience. Students also participate in
an internship seminar that meets at the Dixon University Center and is
supervised by a resident faculty member. The seminar integrates each
student's work experience with a rigorous academic component. Students
earn a total of 15 credits for the internship plus seminar. THIS offers a
stipend to cover student expenses.
The Harrisburg Internship Semester
is recommended for students who have completed their junior year of
studies and is only available for students who can use the internship
credits within their own program of study.
