What is involved in Psych 467 – Human Resources Apprenticeship?
Psych 467 (heldwith Psych 465) is offered Winter only and is open to Honours Psychology students only. The course provides students with an opportunity for an unpaid apprenticeship in a human resources setting in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. The apprenticeship component normally requires a commitment of 6 hours per week for 10 weeks. Students are placed in settings that allow them to gain experience in an area relevant to their career goals as well as to contribute to the work being done in these settings. In addition to the apprenticeship hours, students also meet weekly for the seminar component with the Course Coordinator to discuss issues that arise from apprenticeship experiences and to talk about career issues. Students share information on work within the various sectors in which they are placed in individual and group presentations. Psych 467 counts as an elective course in the HRM Specialization for Honours Psychology Majors. See the course application form on the Psych UG web
