A Shippensburg University student has begun an internship in Harrisburg following his acceptance into a 15-week, Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) internship program.
James Korman of Hanover, Pennsylvania, is a senior Spanish and political science major at SU and is one of 11 students participating in The Harrisburg Internship Semester (THIS) program, according to a PASSHE press release.
Throughout the internship, Korman and his fellow students will be participating in individual research projects and attending academic seminars to meet the program’s requirements.
Korman will be working in the office of state House Speaker Michael Turzai (R-Allegheny).
THIS has sponsored the internships of more than 600 PASSHE students since its inception in 1989. In the past, interns have worked for state-sponsored agencies and the offices of the governor, speaker of the House of Representatives and the attorney general.
