Hands-on, real-world experience is hard to beat. Edinboro University recognizes that
experiential learning is a valuable tool that complements classroom learning and helps
you make important career decisions. A variety of internships often lead to job opportunities,
as proven by the success of our alumni.
Providing excellent internship opportunities is a priority for the University, and
the stories of student success in the workplace have been overwhelming. Edinboro History,
Politics, Languages and Cultures students have interned at the Erie County Historical
Society, Edinboro Area Historical Society, American Museum of Natural History, Multicultural
Health Evaluation Delivery Systems, Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit (IU5),
Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Pittsburgh, as well as at many other organizations.
While some Edinboro University majors require an internship, cooperative education,
student teaching or research experience, many students elect to pursue an internship
to augment their educational portfolio. Every major has one or more designated internship
directors to assist students with identifying opportunities and coordinating credits.
