An internship or co-op is an educational plan which integrates classroom experience in industrial, business, government, or community-service work situations. It allows students to translate academic principles to action, to test career interests, and to develop skills and abilities through carefully planned and supervised programs related to the degree they are seeking.
Close liaison between the university and the firm, institution, or agency providing the work experience is essential to a high-quality internship/co-op. The university will assume the responsibility of integrating this experience within the student s curriculum.
PLEASE NOTE: Students will need to ensure that they have completed the necessary paperwork through their academic department, and to ensure any credit-bearing internship and internship site have signed agreements with IUP.
The Career and Professional Development Center assists in helping to prepare students for internship interviews, including polishing interview skills, writing a professional resume, etc.
Employers: If you have an upcoming internship, please let us know by filling out the Internship Information Form.
