The Arts Work Experience (AWE) Program gives Arts undergraduate students the opportunity to further develop and integrate the skills gained in the classroom with a full-time, paid work experience position. These positions can be 4, 8, 12 or 16 months and start in September, January or May of each year. Students registered in the AWE Program will have access to a selection of mandatory and optional career education sessions developed and delivered by CAPS: Your U of A Career Centre.
