The Philadelphia Center

Discover Your Direction in Life

As a global leader in experiential education, The Philadelphia Center (TPC) offers a dynamic and valuable off-campus experience. Established in 1967, TPC has helped over 6,800 students from 90 colleges and 50 countries discover their personal and professional direction in life. Participants in our 16 week semester and 8 week summer programs earn academic credit while interning 32 hours/week, taking seminars, and living independently in a diverse and vibrant urban setting. With more than 800 placements, we offer substantial internship options for almost any major.

“Both courses directly related to my internship as well as to my experience in the city. They allowed me to better understand what was going on around me.”
