Federal public service internships approved for Artsci students
Students in Arts & Science programs are now able to pursue Queen’s Undergraduate Internship Program (QUIP) internships with the federal public service.
Until now, the public service’s approved university programs did not include Queen’s University Arts & Science programs. This development opens many doors in terms of internship employment opportunities within the public service at both the federal and provincial levels.
Some internships are already available, but the program will be expanded for the 2010-11 school year.
QUIP will now be able to offer more opportunities for Arts & Science students within the public service, continuing in the Queen’s tradition of service to the country.
The approved programs include Languages (all); Economics; History; Sociology; Political Studies; Developmental Studies; Biology; Chemistry; Chemical Physics; Computer Science; Environmental Science (all); Geological Science; and Psychology.Areas of immediate interest and opportunity include the Translation Bureau, Correctional Services, HRDC, Revenue Canada, Veteran’s Affairs, and many others.
