The Arts Internship courses allow students to gain experience in areas relevant to their field of study; allowing students who pursue approved internships to gain up to 3 credits towards their degrees. Arts internships involve a minimum of 150 hours of work, normally over a period of 8-12 weeks in a host institution approved by the Arts Internship Office. Because of the heavy workload involved, students should be wary of coupling an internship course with a full course load.

Eligibility Criteria & Requirements

Open to U2 and U3 students with a minimum CGPA of 2.7 and permission of the department internship advisor. This course will normally not fulfill program requirements for seminar or 400 level courses. 

Steps to Getting Approval for Internship Credit

Once the internship position has been confirmed, follow the steps listed on the AIO website (Steps to Getting Approval for Internship Credit)All steps should be completed well in advance of the start of your internship. No approval will be granted after you have started your internship. 

Please refer to the Department of Sociology website for any additional forms required to register for SOCI 499.


A grade for the internship will be assigned by the academic supervisor, based on the agreement initially made between the student and the academic supervisor.
