Professional Placement Option for Senior Students

The Faculty of Media, Art, and Performance Professional Placement option is an experiential learning course, similar to an internship. It gives students the opportunity to further their knowledge and skill set within an institution related to their major, and at the same time, earn credit towards their degree.

Typically, the placement is off campus. The project or terms of the placement will be developed through consultation between the home department, the student and the institution. Supervision is jointly undertaken by the host institution and a faculty member from the student’s own department.

Students must have completed 60 credit hours and have permission of their Department Head to take part in the program.
