Internships and Practicums

Work integrated learning is a mode of learning that allows students to gain applied experience while enrolled in an academic course.  This experience provides learners the opportunity to apply classroom skills in the workplace and bring workplace skills back to the classroom.

The Career Learning and Development (CLD) office supports students whose programs have either an internship or practicum as an academic requirement or elective option.  Internship and practicum students are enrolled in a prerequisite career preparation course that is designed to prepare participants for both their upcoming work integrated learning experience and the career management skills required to successfully navigate future career transitions.  

The prep course provides information and activities related to everything from personal and professional strengths, job duty preferences and industry research to resume, cover letter and social media presence to networking, interviewing and negotiating skills.
