Arts Practicum

The Arts Practicum is an opportunity to gain work experience while applying the skills you have developed through your degree in a supervised workplace project.

Students will acquire new skills, make valuable workplace connections, and are challenged to apply their broad theory based skills in specific practical situations.

Arts Practicum students will have the opportunity to work on a project of real value to the host organisation, which is overseen by a supervisor.

Unit outline

The Arts Practicum gives you six points towards your Level 2 Elective Unit.

The UWA Handbook provides unit information, availability, unit outcomes, assessment and prerequisites for the Arts Practicum unit HUMA2901.
