Small Class Sizes. Big City Impact.
The Philadelphia Center off-campus study program offers you the opportunity to gain college credit while living and learning independently. You will explore career paths through real-world applications and rigorous, seminar-style courses. Upon completion of the program, you will leave Philadelphia with a strong sense of your abilities, social and professional aspirations, and a plan for your future.
We partner with over 900 organizations and companies in the greater Philadelphia area to offer students a once in a lifetime opportunity at real-world experience. Whether you study in Philly in the fall, spring or summer, our faculty advisors will help ensure you enjoy a positive learning experience.
Move from visitor to neighbor, friend and citizen of Philadelphia.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where you not only have classes and an internship, but a city that has a lot to offer.
[TPC] is one of the best decisions I've ever made. Go out as much as possible and lean on the TPC staff when you're down (they help you up!).
I feel like I have learned a lot about myself as a person, what I should look for in any future company, and the kind of lifestyle I want to pursue.
I would highlight recommend this program to students who want to experience what being independent is like and to those who are open-minded. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about a new city.
