At Widener, we're committed to providing you with practical field experiences, the kind that jumpstart careers. This work happens at your internships, externships, and co-ops in Philadelphia and beyond.
But this work also happens right here on campus. We're home to an elaborate network of campus and community resources where you, our student, will engage in hands-on learning. These resources are also open and available to the public, offering services as well as educational and recreational opportunities.
Our campus resources range from an observatory for stargazing, to human health clinics, to Pennsylvania’s first university-based charter school.
