Psych 467 (Human Resources Apprenticeship) Extended Course Description

PSYCH 467 (Human Resources Apprenticeship)


The University of Waterloo strives to educate outstanding, world-ready graduates whose skills are in high demand. Psych 467 gives students an opportunity to further develop their skills in a human resources setting and explore their career options for credit.

Over a ten-week period, students contribute 60 hours at an organization in the community, and attend a weekly two-hour seminar at the University of Waterloo. Psych 467 will be offered during the Winter 2019 term. The placements are typically unpaid.

Psych 467 is offered on a credit-no credit (CR/NCR) basis. There is no final exam for the course. Department consent is required to enrol.


Students must apply to enrol in the course. Acceptance into the course will be based on assessment of your application (including references, statement of interest, etc.), an interview process, and availability of placements.
