The College of Liberal Arts at Temple University



Go HERE for specific information on internships in Environmental Studies.


We encourage students to apply their skills and knowledge in a credit-bearing internship that utilizes their academic training. Assignments at planning, social service and other agencies, as well as firms that specialize in mapping and geographic data analysis, have helped students secure employment. The internship is complemented by a seminar in which students discuss their experiences. See the Internship Coordinator of this department, Dr. Max Andrucki ( for more details and for information on possible internship sites. Another resource for internships is the College of Liberal Arts Center for Internships and Career Development. Contact Dr. Michael Szekely ( for more information.


Recently, for example, GUS students secured internship positions in places like the Office of the Treasurer, City of Philadelphia, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, and the New Kensington Community Development Corporation.
