Internships and Study Abroad

Experiential learning experiences are a big part of our Department's mission to promote scholarship, leadership and responsible citizenship. All of our majors are required to complete a for-credit off-campus experiential study program. Our proximity to Pennsylvania's state capital, Harrisburg, opens the doors to coveted government internships. And, our affiliation with the Brethren Colleges Abroad (BCA) and other international programs affords students the opportunity to study abroad for a semester.

Examples of experiential learning experiences include:

  • Capital Semester Internship Program
  • American University Washington Semester program
  • Queen's University Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle
  • Brethren Colleges Abroad
  • Elizabethtown College Oxford University Summer Program
  • State House Legislative Fellowship Program
