TWO PAID INTERNSHIPS FOR HUMANITIES STUDENTS!
We are excited to announce two HTLC internships to help Humanities students enhance their education by gaining experiential learning outside of the classroom.
These 6-month paid work terms will allow the interns to gain hands-on experience by working closely on a research project that focuses on the study and design of new Humanities courses.
The Faculty of Humanities seeks two Undergraduate Research Assistants to work as student partners on a research project investigating teaching, learning, and the student experience in Humanities courses. The research project is a longitudinal study of design and outcomes of the new Humanities courses 1QU3, 1VV3, 3CL3, 3CL3, 3LM3, 4LM3. The RAs will have the opportunity to develop skills that would be relevant for a career in education, health, government, or the non-profit sector, while contributing to ongoing advances in undergraduate education at McMaster.
