Giving HU students the chance to put their learning to use
Why enroll at HU? In today's competitive job market, a degree is essential, but often you need more. You also need experience and connections. At Harrisburg University every student gets both. Our campus is located in the heart of the thriving Harrisburg downtown, which is ripe with internship and mentorship opportunities. We help students take maximum advantage of our location in four very important ways: (1) The business mentor program that pairs students in a one-on-one mentoring situation with a successful local businessperson in their field. (2) Every major requires an internship of at least 135 hours of experience in the field. (3) The University works with three firms – Celerity, JFC Global, Inc., and Myles Miller to help our students prepare to launch an effective job search, including résumé critiques and mock interviews. (4) Every student completes a senior project that gives hands-on real world experience in his or her chosen area of study. There's no better preparation to begin your career than you get at Harrisburg University.
