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.
The Career and Professional Development Center acts as a clearinghouse for internships at IUP. To access internship opportunities, register with IUP CareerConnect. In addition to viewing internship opportunities on IUP CareerConnect, all students must visit their departmental internship coordinator to arrange an internship. Information on current internship opportunities is also available in the Career and Professional Development Center, 302 Pratt Hall.
Employers: If you have an upcoming internship, please let us know by filling out the Internship Information Form.
