Field Placement 1

Course Code: ARTC 5206

Academic Year: 2017-2018

The program's first formal field placement is 120 hours in length. It can be paid or unpaid. Some students complete the placement over two days a week for 8 weeks, or it can be completed for fewer days a week for a longer duration, depending on the capacity of the host. Faculty members provide introductions and position descriptions for postings and guide and support students to acquire placements but do not guarantee an opportunity for each student, nor do they "broker" each relationship. This placement is primarily project-oriented, focusing on specific projects within the host organization, such as planning an event, conducting marketing research, analyzing financial data or carrying out an aspect of programming.
