The Faculty of Arts also has a career development center just for Arts students, which include the Work Experience Program which gives students an opportunity to further develop and integrate skills gained in the classroom, with paid work experience position or with paid employment.

The Faculty of Arts has developed a Community Service Learning program, where you gain hands-on experience for course credit! We link academic coursework to community-based experiences. Students bring their time and talents to community organizations as part of their studies, challenging them to engage with their learning in fresh new ways and to explore relationships between theory and practice.
When enrolled in a CSL class, students participate in a community project that is both relevant to the course content and useful to the partnering non-profit organization. Please view their website for further information at: http://www.csl.ualberta.ca/
