The HUMS 2000 course is an elective in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. It may be taken at the end of a first year of study in a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Social Science or other degree within the Faculty of Arts and Social Science and offers students work experience in a range of organisations utilising social sciences and humanities skills.

The internship provides work experience at a host organisation for 14 full days (105 working hours). This practical experience is accompanied by a reading program. The reading component examines different approaches to the study of organisations, their structures, functions and policies, as well as links these issues to the internship experience.

Note: Students must have achieved a credit level or better average across the courses in their degree. The internship may be included as part of a major sequence in the degree courses of the Faculty with the permission of the relevant Head of School.
