Field Placements and Internships
Experience with employers and potential employers is a highly-valued part of all of the programs offered by the Department of Politics and Public Administration.
Since the inception of the BA program in 1984, it has contained a Practicum Option, which allows students with three or more years of work-experience in the public or para-public sector, and a CGPA of at least 2.67, to use their workplace as the foundation for PPA50 A/B: Practicum, a full-year course in the program. Students eligible to complete the Practicum Option complete the BA program with a total of 33 one-semester undergraduate courses, with PPA50 A/B being two of them.
For further details of the Practicum Option and for the necessary application forms, see Curriculum > Level 3 Degree, opens in new window on this site.
