Content

The purpose of the unit is to allow students studying for taught postgraduate qualifications in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and who are usually near the conclusion of their studies, to take up a work or volunteer placement within a host organisation in Australia or overseas. The placement will assist them to gain an understanding of a workplace environment associated with their area of study, as well as undertake a specific project which makes a meaningful contribution. The basic principle of the Internship is that it should further the interests of both the students and the host organisation.

This Internship unit offers students an opportunity to gain first hand work experience in a region or employment sector closely associated with topics studied at university, and to examine and reflect on the practical applications of their academic study. Students are expected to complete a minimum 20 days of work experience in their chosen organisation, either on a full time or part time basis.

This Internship unit is also designated to be a captone experience elective for all Masters students in 8 cp structures. For students doing the 16 cp (Professional) Masters this internship or the 1 cp internship (APE700 - Internship A) is to be core. This would mean that we would have three research component choices for our Masters courses: a Research Paper, a Minor Thesis (PhD Pathway) and this 2 cp Internship.
