The Temple University Internship Program (TUIP) provides paid, meaningful experiential opportunities through on-campus internships. TUIP has carefully designed requirements to ensure that the internships relate to the students' area of study. Internships average roughly 10 hours/week depending upon the agreement of the student and their supervisor/mentor. Faculty and Staff at Temple University can learn more about TUIP on the Employer page. Students are NOT eligible to receive academic credit for their TUIP internships.
