Real working experience while you earn credit!
UNB Fredericton’s Faculty of Arts Internship program places undergraduate students in unpaid, for-credit internships with local non-profit organizations and community partners. We have placement opportunities with over fifteen different community partners and we continue to add more placements partners each year. See our Placement Opportunities for a partial listing of our partner organizations or contact our Internship Co-Coordinators for more information: Cindy Brown and Angela Wisniewski.
Community-based learning that's flexible for your schedule.
This community-based learning internship adds valuable workplace experience to the Arts degree, by allowing students to develop practical skills that relate directly to their academic studies. Internships generally consist of completing weekly hands-on learning activities in addition to preparing a major project related to the ongoing work of the particular organization or partner with which the student is placed.
Internships are available in two 3ch options, ARTS 3001 (fall) & ARTS 3002 (winter), and one 6ch option, ARTS 3000 (fall & winter), depending on the placement. Over the course of the internship term(s), participants should expect to spend 7 hours per week onsite in addition to conducting reading and research that relates directly to the major project. While each individual placement requires certain specialized skills or previous experience, all require students who can work independently and have good communication (both verbal and written) and research skills.
