Experience gives HU students competitive edge

At Harrisburg University, experiential learning lies at the heart of the University’s mission.

Harrisburg University students complete internships with partner companies like Microsoft, Google, and Deloitte, to name a few, giving them real-world experience that makes all the difference when they enter the workforce. By requiring every student to complete a 135-hour internship and senior project, the University provides optimum real-world experience to students. The result? 92 percent of our undergraduate students are employed in their fields of study or are enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation.
