It’s an internship for assessment unit offered by the School of Arts and Social Sciences.
It serves as a capstone unit and a Work Integrated Learning unit across all majors offered under the Bachelor of Arts and Social Sciences (e.g. Communication, Gender Studies, Global Studies and Film, Television & Screen Studies).
It is a compulsory unit for those enrolled in Bachelor of Communication and Media Studies (prior to October 2019) and Bachelor of Digital Media and Communication
It is also cross-listed as a U4 General Studies unit.
Students get the opportunity to integrate theory with practice and gain first-hand experience in the area of specialisation that they wish to explore or pursue upon graduation.
The work placement is aimed at consolidating and extending what they have learnt from core units and other degree units, through experiential learning.
Students typically opt to intern at news agencies, PR consulting firms, advertising agencies and creatively, at aviation, banking, insurance and HR departments/companies. You may opt to intern either in Malaysia or abroad either as a home or international student.
We also strongly encourage students to consider interning at Non-Governmental Organisations as past student interns have done, either locally or abroad.
A. Students who already have 72 credit points (including 12cpts at Arts second-level), with at least one more semester left at the point of enrolling for this unit; and
