GL/ILST 4300 6.00 Professional Internship


The internship takes the form of work or research experience outside the University, in Canada or abroad, for a period that could vary from three months to a full year. Placement opportunities will be sought in both the public sector (municipal, provincial and federal governments and agencies, the United Nations family of institutions, continental and sub-continental organizations, such as the OAS and the EU) and the private sector (NGOs, national and international banks, multinational corporations, consumer and labour unions). Students will submit regular reports to the course director, describing their activities and responsibilities, as well as the students’ reflections on their experiences at work, with particular reference as to how those experiences relate to the students’ academic program. In addition, students will write a final paper which will connect some aspect of what the student has learned during the placement with the academic contents of his/her courses.
