ARC495Y1F: Design Research Internship

This course bridges academic knowledge with professional practice and advances for upper level, undergraduate students models of design research. It offers students, in the form of a six-week internship, the opportunity to apply critical research and visual communication skills to focused work within the professional office of a local practitioner. Successful students will be hired to work on a research project defined by the host office and approved by the professor.

Interns will work full-time (Monday to Friday) with their employer for the duration of the first summer term, May 9th to June 20th, 2022, with the exception of Wednesday afternoons when they will meet with the professor at the Daniels Faculty. These Wednesday afternoon meetings will allow for group and individual discussions on the various forms of design research as well as the positioning of this work in the broader discipline. Interns will be compensated at a rate of $300 per week for the duration of six weeks. This will balance the academic versus practical aspects of ARC495 as an academic internship. 

Applicants must submit a CV, a cover letter (250 words max.), and a Portfolio (7-10 pages). Please submit all documents in PDF format.

The deadline to submit your application is Monday, April 4th, 2022 at 11:59pm EST.
