The Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Western University is committed to creating equitable and inclusive learning environments that value diverse perspectives and experiences, both inside and outside the classroom. We recognize that students can be marginalized based on social identity characteristics such as, but not limited to, Indigeneity, race, ethnicity, nationality, ability, gender identity, gender expression, sexuality, age, language, religion, and socioeconomic status. Understanding this, we strive to facilitate equitable experiences and inclusion during all internship opportunities by respecting and integrating multiple ways of knowing, being, and doing.

* A student entering third year may do an internship in the Summer between second year and third year.

** Any academic offenses may hinder a student’s ability to qualify for an internship. Approval of the Department and Dean’s Office of the Arts and Humanities is required. See the Eligibility Criteria page for more information.
