Humanities+ FAQ

Yes. Both part-time and full-time students are eligible to apply.

Yes! International students are eligible to participate in the Humanities+ program.

Where the internship is concerned: before you begin looking for work, you will meet with a member of our team to review the terms of the VISA you hold (e.g., the amount of hours you are allowed to work, etc.). 

No tuition fees are applied to the H+ program, but some registration fees apply. Please refer to the "Registration fee" section under "Fees applicable to all students" in the "Compulsory fees" section on the University fees webpage.

I.e., all students pay a $28.00 registration fee for each semester in which they are registered in courses (credited or non-credit). Most students will have already paid this for the winter semester. Given SKIL 401 and SKIL 404 take place during the summer semester, this means all students will incur a summer registration fee to participate in these courses of the H+ program.

Yes, you are still eligible. However, if you are accepted into H+ and wish to participate in components of the program that extend into the spring and summer months (i.e., SKIL 401 and SKIL 404), you will be required to canel your application to graduation. To do so, contact the Office of the Registrar (please refer to the email you have received from the Registrar’s office regarding applying for graduation). You will then need to re-apply for graduation, for the next graduation cycle (e.g., Fall 2024).

Yes, SKIL 403 and 401 workshops will be recorded and available for viewing in Moodle. However, please note that recordings are not a replacement for in-person attendance.


Participants can miss up to:

  • up to three SKIL 403 workshops and
  • one SKIL 401 workshop.

If absences exceed these numbers, the H+ team will request a conversation to see what additional support and/or accommodations might be needed to ensure your commitment and success in the program.

Students who can fully commit to the program (i.e., all four SKIL courses) in 2024 will be given priority of acceptance into Humanities+. That said, if you are unable or unsure about your ability to commit to SKIL 401 (Digital Skills Bootcamp) in May 2024 and/or SKIL 404 (the internship) over the 2024 summer, we still strongly encourage your application.

Yes. If you are not currently in your final year of study of your undergraduate degree, you may engage in SKIL 401 (Digital Skills Bootcamp), SKIL 402 (Professional Skills), and/or SKIL 404 (the internship) later in your degree. To explore this option, please meet with someone from the H+ team to discuss.

Once enrolled in the first course of the Humanities+ program (i.e., SKIL 403 Placement Skills), "Member of Humanties+" will appear on your student record. After the sucessful completion of all four SKIL courses, "Humanities+ Complete" will show on your record. If you decide to end your particiation in the Humanities+ program before completing all four SKIL courses, "Withdrawn from Humanities+" will appear on your student record.

Each of the four SKIL courses you successfully complete  (e.g. “SKIL 401 Digital Skills”) will appear on your transcript with an associated "Pass."

Yes. The H+ team will share a curated list of opportunities with students throughout the duration of the program. Please note, however, that no guarantees can be made as to whether these opportunities will align with your interests, or that you will secure an internship. 

This is great!  If you are accepted into the program and there is a specific employer that you are in touch with who would like to hire you for a paid internship, you are encouraged to communicate this to the H+ Placement Coordinator as early as possible so they can work with you and the employer to ensure that you will have an opportunity that aligns with the requirements for Humanities+ employer partners.

French proficiency is NOT a requirement for participation in the H+ program. All program components are delivered in english.

If you are looking for an internship in Québec, proficiency in French is certainly an asset. Work and internship opportunities do exist in Québec for unilingual anglophones, but these can be difficult to find. If you plan on staying in Montréal or Québec post-graduation, developing the ability to communicate in French is important, and there are many programs (some free) that can help with this.

If you do not speak French and/or do not anticipate staying in Montréal or Québec post-graduation, you may want to look at opportunities (in-person or remote) with employers in other provinces in Canada. It is not unusual for a student to spend a few months in another part of the country while doing an internship. If you wish to do this, we will do what we can to support you. We will work with employers in any part of Canada.
