Career Services and Experiential Learning
A lot of colleges talk about experiential learning. Harrisburg University actually delivers the programs that will make a difference in your future success.
Harrisburg University connects your education to the concrete needs of the career world. Our experiential learning program and internship requirements helps you synthesize the concepts you’ve learned across the curriculum and put them to work.
We also hire instructors who bring to the classroom advanced degrees and advanced career experience in the fields they teach. You’ll have the opportunity to benefit from their seasoned insights even as you form your own.
It adds up to the most complete preparation for post-university success available anywhere. And it’s all available to you at HU. Learn more about seminars, projects, internships and career services.
Other institutions might offer one seminar to prepare first year students for college. At Harrisburg University, four seminars are built into the undergraduate curriculum, to guide you through each stage of experiential learning and the development of eight competencies.
Student projects challenge students to identify, investigate and analyze a particular topic or problem in their program of study or concentration. Students develop a unique plan and establish individual learning goals with the close mentorship of a faculty member and community partners.
When you complete an internship with partner companies like Microsoft, Google, and Deloitte, you become more valuable to the workforce. That’s why every Harrisburg University major requires a 135-hour internship: they give you the insight that makes all the difference when entering the workforce.
