Students undertake 80 hours/term (roughly six hours/week) of unpaid work at a company or organization undertaking planning or planning-related work. The internship will occur in a workplace environment, with location details determined in consultation between the workplace internship supervisor, course coordinator, and student. Students will have the opportunity to learn about professional, intellectual, organizational, and other practical issues that occur in a planning or planning-related work environment, and consider how their university studies in planning relate and bring value to that environment. A reflective journal, participation in three seminars, and presentation at end of the term are required, in addition to deliverables agreed upon at the start of the internship between the workplace internship supervisor, course coordinator, and student, if applicable. Student grades are determined by the course coordinator, with structured input from the workplace internship supervisor.

Note: At the discretion of the course coordinator, priority may be given to students who have not completed, or are not currently enrolled in, PLAN 411, depending on availability of internship opportunities.
