Internships

Many students benefit from an internship experience during their junior or senior year. Often these are available during the summer. Formal internships are for academic credit, and involve a faculty supervisor as well as an employer supervisor. The student receives professional experience, and in many cases may receive a wage or expense money.

Current Internship Opportunities:

The Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANta) is hiring an intern for the Planning Department for summer 2014.
