SPU Internships

An internship is an effective way to acquire practical, professional work experience. The Faculties of Human Sciences and Philosophy offer students credited internships integrated into their academic curriculum. There are many benefits to doing an internship:

  • Acquiring relevant experience without extending the duration of your academic studies;
  • Applying the theoretical knowledge you’ve acquired in the classroom;
  • Meeting employers who are actively looking for new recruits;
  • Expanding your professional network, a valuable asset upon completion of your studies! 


Practical Internship

In a practical internship, you are an active member of a workplace team. You will learn to integrate the tasks assigned in the field with your academic studies.


Observation Internship

An observation internship is an excellent way to acquire practical experience by shadowing professionals in the workplace as they carry out their daily tasks.
