Penn State Harrisburg is the largest Commonwealth campus of the Pennsylvania State University, located in Middletown, PA (just outside of Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania). Our smaller class sizes allow students to interact and work closely with professors on their research and scholarship. The college enjoys great proximity to the policy and legislative headquarters of the Commonwealth, and our students also have great access to high-volume job markets such as Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City.
