Undergraduate Credit-Bearing Internships

What is an Academic, Credit-Bearing Internship?

As one approach of experiential education, credit-bearing internships support the University’s mission of providing diverse, dynamic, and meaningful experiences to inspire learners to grow both intellectually and personally; enabling them to contribute positively to local and global communities.  Millersville University recognizes that credit-bearing internship experiences are a valuable part of education, allowing students to engage in a professional experience at an organization with supervision and mentorship from both faculty and employers while developing new skills and learning about a field or industry that complements classroom learning.  The opportunity to apply theory to practice is treated like any other academic course where students may earn credit toward graduation. 

Here's confirmation from your peers why you should complete an internship for credit from Will Hollis, spring 2017 Applied Engineering Intern, who interned with James Craft & Son, Inc.

Internships Steps

“I believe that the credit-bearing internship program is a great thing that is employed by Millersville University. It gives students more of a want to go out and get real experience, or it did in my case at least. Once I found out I could get credits for on the job experience as opposed to taking a summer course, it was a no brainer for me. I also like how there are detailed instructions on how to write your paper at the end of your internship. It is extremely helpful and helped me breeze through the paper.”
