This pa­per aims to un­der­stand and dis­cuss the un­der­ly­ing fac­tors that in­flu­ence the ef­fec­tive­ness of the in­tern­ship pro­gram at the Uni­ver­sity of the Philip­pines Ar­chives Di­vi­sion from the point of view of UP SLIS stu­dents. For years, not so much has been writ­ten with re­gard to archival in­tern­ships in cul­tural in­sti­tu­tions within the Philip­pines, more so in aca­demic ar­chives. This re­search shall there­fore shed light on the strengths of the en­tire ar­chives in terms of its col­lec­tion, staff, and fa­cil­i­ties. Stu­dents who have suc­cess­fully com­pleted their in­tern­ship in the ar­chives as a pre­req­ui­site for LIS 181, a course in field as­sign­ment, shall be the pri­mary re­spon­dents of this study. This study hopes to high­light the strengths, but most im­por­tantly, the pos­si­ble im­prove­ment of the cur­rent pro­gram based on the ob­ser­va­tions of the re­spon­dents. Fur­ther­more, the re­sult of this study may help es­tab­lish pat­terns for cre­at­ing an in­tern­ship pro­gram for archival in­sti­tu­tions within the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors, aca­demic and oth­er­wise. Key­words: archival in­tern­ship; in­tern­ship eval­u­a­tion; archival man­age­ment
