HUMS2000 is an elective in the UNSW Arts and Social Sciences programs and the Criminology stream in the Bachelor of Psychological Sciences program. It may be taken at the end of the first year of study and offers students work experience in a range of organisations utilising social research, policy and humanities skills.

Aligned with the UNSW’s emphasis on work integrated learning (WIL), this course is a supported internship designed to give you an understanding of organisational contexts through work place orientated experience which uses and develops the skills gained in your studies.  Self-guided reading on organisational theory, plus research on a particular aspect of your internship will enhance your understanding of your host organisation as well as develop the knowledge and skills required to work in your specific industry or field.

Note : Students must have achieved a credit level or better average across the course in their degree. The internship may be included as part of a major stream in the Faculty programs with the permission of the relevant Convenor.
