Arts Internship Office
The AIO is a Faculty of Arts’ student’s first stop and central resource for everything related to internships. The AIO’s goal is to help students enrich their academic careers and gain out-of the classroom experience through summer work and research placements to make them more competitive in their future academic and professional endeavors. To that end, the AIO offers internship opportunities, funding, advising, and professional development workshops designed to guide students through every step of the internship process.
The AIO coordinates several internships each summer at various host organizations within Canada and around the world. Each year, Arts students who will be returning to the faculty in the fall are eligible to apply to these positions. The opportunities are outlined in the postings section of our website and we encourage you to take a look to see which positions might interest you.
Not only does the AIO coordinate internships for students, but it also provides funding opportunities to make these experiences accessible. Importantly, funding is available not only for students who undertake AIO-coordinated internships, but also to students who find their own internship (which must meet certain eligibility requirements). This is another great opportunity for students to pursue, as many AIO-coordinated internships are competitive, or a student might find the perfect role within an organisation not affiliated with the AIO and want to apply for funding for that position.
