The internship offers students the opportunity to obtain firsthand experience in the workplace. Students are provided the opportunity to apply concepts and techniques learned in the classroom to the workplace environment. The internship program is administered in cooperation with a variety of organizations, including government, industry, insurance, health care and other related enterprises. The 12-week, 12-credit internship is offered only during the summer term with the majority of the interns receiving compensation.
All students accepted into the Safety Management major are encouraged to be student members of both the American Society of Safety Engineers and the student section of ASSE at Slippery Rock University. Students are also encouraged to attend meetings, conferences, seminars, and workshops as part of their professional educational growth.
