What are my SIGC Options?
The Faculty has identified two overarching themes for its undergraduate curricula: Social Innovation (Out-of-Classroom Experience) and Global Citizenship (Beyond-Local Experience). Students are required, as a condition of graduation, to undertake internships and/or exchange study under these twin themes. We believe these high impact practices (Kuh 2008) are essential to student engagement and student success.
Curriculum Graduation Requirement*
* Students are strongly recommended to complete the graduation requirement on or before the second semester of their final year of studies.
^Social Innovation internships, together with the Field Placement course, will only be available for BPsych students from Term-time 2023-2024 onwards.
