Why enroll at HU? In today’s competitive job market, a degree is essential, but often you need more. You also need experience . At Harrisburg University every student gets it.   Our campus is located in the heart of the thriving Harrisburg downtown, which is ripe with internship opportunities. That’s why we designed our degree programs to help students take maximum advantage by linking the classroom to the career world.   Every major at HU requires an internship of at least 135 hours of experience in the field.

Our success with internship placements has garnered national attention by the media.  Harrisburg University of Science and Technology has made the “Short List” at U.S. News for its success placing students in internships.   The University ranks #3 in a U.S. News’ Short List“10 Colleges With the Highest Internship Rates.” The University has a 100 percent success rate and HU is the only college in Pennsylvania to appear in the Top 10 of the ranking.

Known for its Best Colleges rankings, the U.S. News’ Short List is separate from its overall rankings and is a regular series at the magazine that magnifies individual data points in hopes of providing students and parents a way to find which undergraduate or graduate programs excel or have room to grow in specific areas.

Great things are happening at HU and we invite you to be a part of it.  If you’d like to learn more about offering an internship to a student, email CONNECT@HarrisburgU.edu.
