King’s students have the opportunity to work in almost every area of university life, and even beyond the university through facilitated internships and fellowships. Typical jobs include peer mentor, fundraising campaign caller, residence junior don, reporter for the communications team, fitness centre attendant and athletics photographer, just to name a few.
If you are looking for an opportunity to work as an assistant to a professor, look for the Student Assistantship Program (SAP) listings at the beginning of fall, winter, and summer term. Successful candidates will be paired with a faculty supervisor to work on a project such as academic research, publication preparation, new course development, journalistic projects, academic and cultural events, outreach, or archival work. These positions are light on hours—just 30h completed over a term, usually according to the student’s preference—so they offer the opportunity to gain career-building academic experience and skills, while making a minimal impact on study time.
Students have the opportunity to work on campus at one of three student-owned and operated businesses: the King’s Co-op Bookstore, the Wardroom (student lounge) and the Galley (coffee shop). Ask at these locations about openings.
King’s also coordinates several funded summer internships and part-time work experiences at external organizations and businesses that will offer students the opportunity to experience for themselves the value of their liberal arts education.
The King’s Undergraduate Fellowships in Public Humanities is an opportunity to do an experiential learning internship at an organization or business that brings the humanities to bear on the world.
The Scotia Scholars Award, funded by the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness, is a funded opportunity for two undergraduate students at King’s to be the principal investigator on their own research study in the area of health research.
