Career Readiness Certificate

CLA Dean's Office
College of Liberal Arts
  • Program Type: Undergraduate credit certificate
  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2019
  • Required credits to graduate with this degree: 6 to 15
  • Degree: Career Readiness Certificate
The career readiness certificate is earned by students who intentionally and intensively engage in the career development process during their undergraduate program. The certificate program challenges students to think about the totality of their liberal arts degree and the acquisition of the core career competencies. The curriculum is designed to support students from the exploration stage of the career management process and prepares them to compete for significant experiences, and ultimately reinforces the necessary reflection required to articulate their proficiency in the core career competencies. The certificate will signal to potential employers and graduate programs that students have demonstrated the ability to describe their unique academic path in the College of Liberal Arts, what theyíve learned in the process, and how that relates to their readiness. It encourages the integration of academics and co-curricular experiences through the common language of core career competencies and connects the academic experience to their professional life. The certificate is open to all CLA undergraduate students.

This course will enrich student learning by providing concrete experiences to apply knowledge of oral and written communication outside the academic context. Putting English skills to work in your internship tasks will allow you to see how communication changes with contexts and audiences. You will be able to practice new voices and styles. Depending on the internship activities, you may practice communication germane to marketing, development, editing, social media, and the professional office. You will receive feedback from your site supervisors and instructors as to your understanding of these new ways of communicating. In this course, you will keep a weekly journal detailing the work you do in the internship; analyzing the significance of the work within the greater activity of the internship site; and making connections between the work and the academic learning you have done in English. You will also write a final paper on a topic agreed upon with the instructor, which should build upon the writing you've done in the journals. We'll start by having you work with your internship supervisor to create a learning agreement that outlines what you plan to learn and accomplish during your internship and how you plan to contribute and add value to the organization. You will complete various additional assignments including discussion, readings, and writing. prereq: must be a formally declared English major registered in the College of Liberal Arts and have consent of instructor.

3 Credit Course: The Global Internship Course (GIC) provides a unique and innovative opportunity for students to engage in an internship (and living abroad experience) while supported by academic in-class and online educational sessions to further develop their personal and professional skills while earning academic credit. GIC students also partake in out-of-class guided and self-guided activities and field studies that have been devised to enable students to become more comfortable with, and knowledgeable of, their internship locations/neighbourhoods. Furthermore, a day-long field trip illustrates how socio-political and economic factors, such as the effects of housing costs in global cities, necessitate commuting and changing work practices such as flexible working hours and working remotely that embody best practice in well-being. Field studies vary depending on location and may also include a focus on, for example, corporate social responsibility and sustainability. The GIC fits in with CAPA?s philosophy and practice of enabling students to learn about the social and cultural context of their internship placement and the host region and country, as well as other GIC themes, through comparative global analysis. Where appropriate, this analysis will be facilitated through a small selection of CAPA Masterclasses given by leading professionals from a diverse range of fields. The in-class active learning approach gives students the opportunity to discuss and analyse theories and models of work, organisational behaviour, and management in a cross-cultural context. 6 Credit Course: The Global Internship Course (GIC) provides a unique and innovative opportunity for students to engage in an internship (and living abroad experience) while supported by academic in-class and online educational sessions to further develop their personal and professional skills while earning academic credit.

Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Typically offered: Every Fall, Spring & Summer
This course provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to undertake a research project in the context of their international education experience. Students opting for this course will be guided towards opportunities recommended by CAPA and determined by local resources and expertise. In most cases, CAPA will define potential projects generated by senior academic staff and faculty on site and suggest relevant sources: students will apply to do those projects. This would not preclude student proposals or projects suggested by home universities for individual or group study. Students will be introduced to core research concepts and will develop research skills through designing, executing, writing, and presenting their own research project within frameworks designed by CAPA. The topics that students will explore will be consistent with their majors and their own individual interests but will exploit the overseas experience. A variety of research methods employed in geographical, historical, political, sociological, cultural studies, and digital humanities will be introduced that may be applied to multidisciplinary topics, including qualitative and quantitative methods, as well as mixed methods research as appropriate to students' research themes. In collaboration with their instructor, students will develop appropriate research methodologies that will engage with a range of local sources, as well as online resources. These will include archival documents such as official records, maps, and personal accounts as well as basic ethnographic techniques such as questionnaires, interviews, and oral histories. Students will also be introduced to contemporary social investigation and the use of artistic/fictional representations of place and environment, and the use of photographs and other multimedia sources as tools for analysis.
