See how experiential learning including field internships complement formal classroom instruction and lead to rewarding jobs for students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department at PennWest Edinboro.


At PennWest Edinboro, we recognize that experiential learning is a valuable tool in helping students to make career decisions and in complementing formal classroom learning. Providing excellent internship opportunities is a priority, and the stories of student success in the workplace have been impressive.

While some PennWest Edinboro 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.

Students who are interested in internship experiences are encouraged to contact the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department internship coordinators, or visit the Center for Career Development’s internship webpages for more information.


Acclaimed artists, medical professionals, Disney and Pixar animators and leaders in business, education, criminal justice and many other fields have built the foundations of their success at PennWest Edinboro, and so can you.

The Boro Center for Career Development assists students at the onset of their professional lives with many outstanding services, including building resume, interviewing and networking skills and offering numerous job fair opportunities annually both on- and off-campus.
