9.10 ARTS WORK EXPERIENCE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM (AWEI)
In conjunction with the Student Employment Services, the Faculty offers a Work Experience Internship Program for Arts Students. The program serves to enhance the educational experience of students by adding a work experience that integrates conceptual and applied learning in the workplace. Interns work at host organizations on a designated project. Host organizations in turn, receive help in completing projects and research, and can assess the quality of students as potential future employees.
Under this program, students work 8-12 hours a week doing practical research-oriented work in various provincial organizations and receive 3 credit hours for a course, as well as valuable work experience. If appropriate, the course can be used to fulfill a major requirement.
