Work Experience

Optional Work Term

Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional work term in a formal work environment. The work term is similar in length to an academic semester and typically involves full-time work hours that may be paid or unpaid. In programs with limited work term opportunities, additional academic requirements may be required for eligibility. Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional work term stream regardless of success in securing a work position. To qualify, students must achieve an overall GPA of 3.5 in their first semester, a minimum grade of "A" (80 per cent) in GRM700 and GRM701 and be recommended by the program.

Your Career

As part of a select group trained to connect with politicians, public servants and political staff in support of the policy interests of your organization or client, you will be prepared for entry-level positions with non-profit organizations, industry and trade associations, corporations and professional service firms.
