The Temple University Internship Program (TUIP) provides paid, meaningful experiential opportunities through on-campus internships. The Career Center works with staff and faculty to ensure that TUIP internships support students' professional development and growth. Internships average roughly 10 hours/week depending upon the agreement of the student and their supervisor/mentor.

Students are NOT eligible to receive academic credit for their TUIP internships. We cannot guarantee all TUIP internships will appeal to all majors. If you have suggestions for departments to invite to participate, reach out to Holly Logan, Assistant Director of Internships & Experiential Learning, at holly@temple.edu. Faculty and staff at Temple University can learn more about TUIP on the Employer page.
