Work-Integrated Learning

Discover the transformative power of Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) in the Faculty of Media and Creative Arts. Comprised of two courses focused on self-discovery, Professional Practice and Field Experience, WIL offers students unparalleled opportunities to bridge classroom learning with real-world application.

The journey of securing a Field Experience is as important as the destination. Whether paid or unpaid, these experiences occur within a specific semester, typically towards the program's end. As students navigate the process of securing their own Field Experience, they gain invaluable insights and practical skills crucial for professional growth.

With a structured approval process and set hours, Field Experience helps students maximize their learning potential and emerge more confident and competitive. Discover the transformative impact of WIL in the Faculty of Media and Creative Arts and unlock boundless opportunities for success.

"Heading to Africa was an experience of a lifetime and I am so grateful that I was given this opportunity as a work placement here at Humber. It was one thing to be able to direct peers during my semesters, but to take the skills, techniques, and theories I learned in an academic setting and apply them to a real-world scenario was a more valuable learning experience than I ever imagined.”

“My time at Target was something I never knew I needed. I was there to learn and they did not hesitate to help me! I used the skills I learned from my classes, and my supervisors helped me improve and become more confident. I faced some challenges along the way, as any intern would, but this opportunity helped me learn from my mistakes and grow as a creative.”
