Think Outside of the Classroom
As a liberal arts student, you are strongly encouraged to pursue valuable out-of-the-classroom experiences through internship opportunities. With Duquesne being in walking distance of Downtown Pittsburgh, you will have endless opportunities to take the skills you learn in the classroom and put them into practice through real-world scenarios. Faculty are often aware of remote internships in their fields of study and can also help you build those connections well beyond the Pittsburgh community.
The College awards credit for McAnulty Academic Program (MAP) Internships, which are sponsored by academic departments or arranged through partners in Washington, D.C. and London, England. Read more about MAP internships to explore these options.
Students can also explore credit-bearing internships through the Center for Career Development.
