Extern Program

Extern Week:  January 12-16, 2015


What is an Externship?

An externship is a three to five day job-shadowing experience designed to help students gain insights into the realities of the workplace. During an externship students are given the opportunity to “shadow” an Extern Sponsor, typically an alumnus, parent or friend of Ursinus College, throughout a traditional workday.

The Extern Program is open to Ursinus College students of all class years and majors, at least 18 years or older. Preference will be given to second, third and fourth year students. Some Workplace Sponsors may restrict their Externships to certain majors or years; this will be noted in the specific Externship description.
