Global Internships

The Global Internship program is offered every summer in major cities throughout the world: Barcelona; Boston; Chicago; Dublin; Hong Kong; London; Los Angeles; Miami; New York City; Paris; and Washington, D.C. Regardless of their destinations, all students spend three weeks on Temple’s Main Campus taking Intercultural Communication in the Workplace together before they depart for full-time internships in their chosen destinations. Global internships include all the necessary onsite amenities, including housing, meals (in most locations), program events and transportation.

As a part of this program, you’ll work one-on-one with an industry expert who will help you refine your interviewing skills, perfect your résumé and help you secure an internship in your desired field. Each program destination combines exciting events, learning and and travel with a résumé-building internship. The required prep course will ensure you’re fully prepared for the workplace and cultural differences you’ll likely encounter in your host city. You’ll also earn transcripts from Temple University and six (6) credits.

NOTE: Language proficiency is not required in any location. English-speaking internship placements are available.
