What is an Extern?

An extern is an Ursinus student who spends three to five consecutive days at the workplace of an alum or friend of the College to gain practical exposure to a potential career field. 

During our 2019 Extern Program, 36 organizations hosted 51 externs.

Read more about the Extern Program and what our students and sponsors have told us about the value of the program in the 2019 Externship Program Report.

“This externship was truly life changing for me. It answered a lot of questions about life after graduation that I didn’t even know I had.” -
