Real World Learning

Pitt-Johnstown Education

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

Early Childhood Education

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. 


"I was able to showcase my education through being in the classroom. I learned many new skills from the cooperating teacher as well as the students. Being a teacher is one of the greatest fulfilling experiences.”
