PROFESSIONAL INTERNSHIP (CREATIVE PRACTICE)

MSS3INT

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject will provide students with an opportunity to gain an internship of between 100 and 120 hours with an organisation or community group in the creative arts sector. During their internship, students will apply and expand their knowledge and skills in a real work setting. They will experience how creative work 'works' and will gain a better understanding of the cultural, social and economic structures and contexts of workplaces, practices and organisations. An internship will also provide valuable networks and contacts, and importantly, as students encounter real-world contingencies, it will allow them to reflect on and refine their interests, and to better imagine themselves as work-ready future professionals. In consultation with the subject coordinator and host organisation, students will locate their internship to suit their interests, and will articulate specific learning outcomes. Placements are competitive and students are selected based on their achievements in second year, their discipline knowledge, and their communication skills.
