The Arts Ambassador role is perfect for students who are keen to improve their PR, marketing or journalism skills, or want a taste of what it would be like to work as a community manager, freelance writer or photographer.
Arts Ambassadors love to write, take photographs, create videos and share their experiences online. All ambassadors are required to contribute to the Faculty of Arts blog, and social media accounts in English and/or French. Blog posts/articles can be written about anything pertaining to Arts students: departmental events, student profiles, faculty interviews, alumni success stories, etc. Photo essays will also be accepted. Ambassadors will pitch their ideas to the Communications Officer or Communications Assistant, and will receive valuable feedback and editing on all pieces submitted. There is no maximum number of articles per semester, but we ask for a minimum of two.
For Ambassadors who love photography and can't stop posting on Instagram, we will also have opportunities available for the curation of the @McGillArts Instagram account. This will rotate monthly. Photographic samples are required.
Faculty of Arts events
Student Ambassadors will be called upon to attend and cover events taking place across the Faculty of Arts.
You can apply by filling out our application form (below). We also require writing and photographic (optional) samples. The Faculty of Arts Communications Team will select our Student Ambassadors based on academic standing, writing skills, vim and vigor. Bilingualism is a huge asset but not required.
