Internships & Opportunities
City and Regional Planning MS candidates are required to complete a supervised 180-hour internship to acquire and apply practical skills in planning. Internship placements are made at public agencies, nonprofit institutions and private firms, with designated on-site and planning and community development faculty supervisors.
Additionally, Tyler career coaches specialize in the types of jobs available in the arts, design and built environment, mentoring students on everything from cover letters and résumés to career advice and interviews.
Temple’s Career Center is another resource that empowers students to find pathways to future success. The Career Center offers comprehensive career development services, from résumés and interviews to finding internships and jobs.
A robust network of alumni in leading firms, agencies and organizations and faculty members who work in the field connect students with opportunities for mentorship and internships.
By integrating theory, interdisciplinary practice and experiential learning, Tyler’s architecture and environmental design programs prepare students to be job-ready on day one, with the capacity to grow as leaders and innovators in a range of careers.
Tyler’s curriculum extends from the classroom into the real world of Philadelphia, where students engage in field research and partner with professionals and organizations. This approach launches graduates who are bold problem-solvers into successful careers as architects, facility managers, landscape architects, educators, historic preservationists, sustainability experts, urban planners and more.
