Important Notes

  1. Interested students should start preparing for their internship well before enrolling in the course (i.e., January is not too early).
     
  2. By June 30, students registered in SOC480Y5Y are responsible for:
    1. obtaining an internship and confirming those arrangements with the host; and
       
    2. applying for department approval of their proposed internship position.
  3. International students should review the information at https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/experience/students/international-students, and visit the International Education Centre as soon as possible to ensure you have the appropriate legal documentation required to work in Canada in place before the start of the course/internship in September.
