Internship/Capstone Course

As a career-oriented college, and in addition to our hands-on curriculum, Central Penn requires all students to complete an internship or capstone course. This opportunity allows students to participate and experience their future careers in the real world. Internships are 180 hours in length and include a research project tailored to the individual's career path. 

Continuing education and online students may complete a capstone course in place of the traditional internship. This can be done at both the associate and bachelor’s degree level. This course requires an extensive research project and paper related to the student’s chosen career path.
