Credit-Bearing Internships

Millersville University has a centralized credit-bearing internship program coordinated and managed by Experiential Learning and Career Management.  Our successful program relies on the collaborative efforts of our partners:  Employers, Department Internship Coordinators, Faculty Internship Supervisors and the Student Interns.

Each academic department coordinates its interns under the direction of an appointed faculty co-op/internship coordinator. This person is responsible for approving students seeking credit-bearing internships, approving new jobs targeted to students in their department, and assigning faculty supervisors, as well as problem-solving, communicating, monitoring, record-keeping, advising and more. Please click here to view a list of faculty internship coordinators for each academic department.

Faculty internship supervisors from individual departments provide the academic supervision, mentorship and guidance for students participating in credit-bearing internships. 

The best way to become familiar with the internship program is to review the information we provide to our students. Even if you have been supervising interns for years, it is worth checking out what we are sharing with and requiring of our students.  Click HERE for details.  The first two steps required for every student interested in a credit-bearing internship is to complete the request for internship form.  Questions?  Call us at 717-871-7655.
