Sustaining and Enhancing Programs That Engage Students and Prepare for Career and Professional Success
Recognizing the importance of learning beyond the walls of the university, Pitt-Johnstown’s signature Real World Action Program is our unique and purposeful way of combining classroom learning with campus and civic engagement to provide students with a solid foundation for career and professional success.
Emphasizing experiences that link theory to practice, students are encouraged and supported as they participate in internships, community service, elections, co-ops, service learning, study abroad, mentored research projects.
Throughout, the emphasis is on developing in-demand job skills and attributes, including knowledge, critical thinking skills, effective communications, creativity, problem-solving abilities, teamwork, and overall real world readiness.
Compared to respondents from Mid-east Public Institutions, Pitt-Johnstown students far exceeded their peers in participation in internships, co-ops, field experience, student teach or clinical placement.
