Real-world opportunities are waiting for you! You could be the one to spend a summer with the video team at Tesla or as a junior curator at the Smithsonian Institution. You get career-building experience and maybe even more. From a safety sciences internship
at Georgia-Pacific to an accounting internship at Deloitte in Pittsburgh, IUP internships often turn into job offers.
You don’t always have to travel far to find opportunities that take you far in your career. Some are close to campus—like Footlight Players, a summer youth theater program at IUP that offers internships each summer.
Jess Arroyo, a history/pre-law major, found career direction during her internship at the Public Defender’s Office in the Indiana Courthouse near campus.

Want the adventure of going somewhere farther away? A world of possibilities awaits. Just ask Anthropology student Nancy Lopez Sosa, who spent six weeks in Mexico helping people in a rural community by creating vegetable gardens, sharing health information,
and tutoring children.

Finding the right internship for you takes a little planning, but we’re here to help. IUP has plenty of sites already lined up—places that have had IUP interns in the past and are eager for more. Trying for somewhere new? We can help with that, too.
In addition to internship opportunities, our students enjoy other hands-on learning experiences:
Please post internships on Handshake. Internship sites must be approved prior to an IUP student being approved for the internship. That site approval may take as long as 45 days or more. Internship agreements are coordinated through the IUP Office of Extended Studies.
