Prerequisite(s): 45 university-level credits

This course gives students an opportunity to apply classroom learning in an internship. Working under the supervision of both a UFV faculty member from a particular Arts discipline and an internship supervisor, students will work in a host organization to carry out projects/assignments or hands-on tasks. The work done by the student will be connected directly to his or her academic studies in a particular discipline in the Arts. Students will be evaluated by means of structured reflective assignments, journals, discussions, and other mechanisms set out by the supervising Arts faculty member. Students will be encouraged to develop their own community placements with support from the course instructor and UFVâ€™s Career Centre Internship Coordinator, who will implement and provide support to structure the service learning placement. This internship is not intended to replace discipline-specific practicum requirements.
