Intern Philly offers an exciting mix of coursework, cultural engagement and practical work experience designed to help you make the most of your program. For Summer 2022, you'll complete your courses and internship projects in person and/or online*, using video conferencing, event streaming and other tools to engage with professors, students and employers throughout your program (if applicable).

Intern Philly summer students will earn 6 credits through two courses, including an experiential course focused on Center City Philadelphia and the internship Cornerstone Course, Work in Thought & Action. The Cornerstone Course is a dynamic experiential education course providing the reflection framework and research support to maximize your learning from a work placement experience and connect it to both your course of study and your career aspirations. The interdisciplinary Site Matters course explores the definitions, meanings, and processes of place and space (and their differences) in order to embrace the city as a site of inspiration, innovation, creation, and opportunity.
