Internships as a Liberal Arts Student

The McAnulty College of Liberal Arts highly encourages students to make the most of their time at Duquesne by gaining valuable out-of-the-classroom experiences. One way to take advantage of some of the opportunities available to you as a student is through an internship.

Internships

Students at InternshipThe McAnulty College of Liberal Arts provides internship opportunities for its students both directly and in partnership with other organizations. The College awards credit for internships sponsored by academic departments in the College and internships arranged through partners in Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C., and London, England. Read the College's policies and procedures for internships to explore these options.

The Center for Career Development, located on the sixth floor of the Duquesne Union, is a great resource for finding an internship, especially in Pittsburgh. The Center for Career Development can also help with resume and cover letter writing, interviewing techniques and preparation, and searching for an internship during your time at Duquesne. They offer many workshops and events throughout the academic year as well as individual appointments with a career counselor. In addition to their location in the Duquesne Union, the Center for Career Development has part time hours in the Liberal Arts' Advising Office in College Hall for students' convenience. 

Organizations where McAnulty College of Liberal Arts students have interned in the last few years include: PNC Bank, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), Dick's Sporting Goods, Diocese of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Police, Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Penguins, Brunner, and Teach for America.
