Communication, Media & Film offers internship courses (CMAF-3990/CMAF-4990) as an experiential learning opportunity for 3rd- and 4th-year students. Students can take each of CMAF-3990 and CMAF-4990 twice, for a maximum of four internship courses.
A single internship course is for 120 hours of work, divided over the semester. The course grade is based primarily on an evaluation by the employer and a final written report authored by the student.
CMF interns obtain valuable on-the-job skills in communications-related roles for a variety of organizations. Examples of recent employers:
Baeumler Group of Companies (HGTV’s Island of Bryan)
University of Windsor (Office of Enrolment Management)
Candidates for CMF internship courses must:
- Be enrolled in a CMF program, including General, Concurrent, Honours, Combined Honours
- Have a semester 5 standing or above (for the semester in which the internship takes place)
- Have, at minimum, a 70% cumulative GPA at the time of application
Application, Approval and Placement Process
The process of enrolling in a CMF internship course begins with submitting a complete application package. Applications will be made available three times per year:
- In June for the following fall semester
- In October for the following winter semester
- In February for the following summer semester
Students must apply by the specified deadline for each application period.
Qualified applicants will then be contacted for an interview with the CMF Internship Coordinator. This interview will determine if the student is to be recommended for an internship. If recommended, it is the student’s responsibility to secure a relevant placement. Guidance, assistance, and leads will be provided by the Applied Learning Coordinator from Career Development & Experiential Learning, but placements cannot be guaranteed. A student will not be enrolled in CMAF-3990 or CMAF-4990 until an internship is secured and approved.
