For honours students of Business & Society in their third year and above, the Dean's Office in LAPS offers the opportunity for paid internships of 4, 8, 12 and 16 months. For details of the internship program, please refer to the Liberal Arts and Professional Studies Internship Program website. Please note the academic requirements presupposed for enrolment in the program.
The Business & Society program offers a practicum course, AP/SOSC 4046 6.0, which is compulsory for all honours students in the social economy stream, though it is also open to other honours students with the course director's permission. In the course, students will be placed into a social economy organization, for example, a co-operative workplace, community organization, charity, and so forth, where they will receive training and gain knowledge of alternative workplaces.
The following is a video which was made in conjunction with the Experiential Education Office at YorkU about the practicum course, 2014-2015:
