Internships

An internship is a structured learning situation in which a student applies concepts learned in the classroom to an on-the-job experience. The primary purpose of an internship is to provide an academically valid pre-professional work experience for the development of the student’s human, social, and professional skills. Interns receive practical training in a variety of settings through cooperatively arranged placements. Interns are given responsibilities that are high quality, not menial, and interns work side-by-side with other employees. Internships may be done either for credit (typically during the junior or senior year) or as non-credit, transcript notation internships (often paid and completed during the summer). More than 75% of Juniata students participate in at least one internship
