Internships

At Penn State Behrend, an internship is a professional, career-related experience in an organizational setting for which the student may receive academic credit.  The amount of time spent by the student at the internship location is approximately 10-12 hours during the academic year and 10-40 hours during the summer.  However, alternative schedules are possible and depend upon the needs and expectations of the parties involved.
