Summer – 8 Credits

The summer program is an ideal option for students who:

  • May have participated in a semester abroad but would like to explore a profession, develop skills, and/or receive job training prior to graduation
  • Cannot go off-campus for a semester due to athletic schedule or course requirements
  • Need a few extra credits for graduation

The Philadelphia Center’s 10-week summer internship and seminar experience offers undergraduates and recent graduates a meaningful opportunity to learn the dynamics of work over their summer break. You will work closely with your TPC faculty and staff advisors to find an internship (32-40 hours per week) that’s right for you.

Prior to your arrival in Philadelphia, you will work with our advisors to create a professional resume and you will interview via phone or video chat with several organizations to find the placement that best meets your academic and career goals.

  • Internship/Field Placement Course – 4 credits / 1 unit
  • Cultures & Communities Seminar – 4 credits / 1 unit

I only had time for the summer program, but it has been a summer full of friends, choices and amazing memories that I will never forget!
