Experience, the saying goes, is often the best teacher, and that's why at Gettysburg we surround you with opportunities to gain hands-on, real-world experience in career fields that interest you.
When you take part in an internship, a short-term externship, or some other experiential program you become engaged in a meaningful way in a professional workplace environment, find out what you like (or don't) about a particular career path, and develop important contacts that can lead to good jobs after graduation.
"My internship provided a different view of my career track. It allowed me to ask many questions,
make great contacts and see all the areas my future profession could potentially lead me towards"
