Real World Learning

Pitt-Johnstown Business Marketing

Real World learning at Pitt-Johnstown is a unique blend of academics and experiential learning, leading to rewarding career opportunities.


Our distinctive people, place, and programs create a learning environment that gives students an opportunity to develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences in and outside the classroom. Real World opportunities, including internships, service-learning, undergraduate research, study abroad, and other creative and professional work experiences, result in exceptional performance. 

The Real World Action Program is a University-wide initiative designed to guide students through a series of programs, activities and experiences that complement their academic studies.

Marketing Careers

“I highly recommend internships -- gaining real-world experience is invaluable and often leads to full-time career opportunities. At Conemaugh Health System, the Marketing Communications Department provided a comprehensive experience. I utilized skills I learned in the classroom at Pitt-Johnstown through participation in hands-on projects.”
