Your university experience will be what you make it. So make it amazing! At uLethbridge you can customize your degree through: Applied studies

Independent studies

Create your own course and receive credit for learning gained through a volunteer or employment experience.

If you have a passion to study a particular theme or topic but don’t find a course offered in that area, you can design your own research project with a professor of your choice.

Co-operative education and internships Find out what career path is right for you, gain relevant experience and earn a competitive wage — all before you graduate. Students in all majors within the Faculties of Arts & Science, Fine Arts, Management and the public health major in Health Sciences can participate in co-op.


Local, regional, national or international internships and work experiences are available in areas directly related to your degree. uLethbridge students have completed internships at Alberta Health Services, the Canadian Space Agency, Environment Canada, Imperial Oil and the Smithsonian Museum in Washington!

Study abroad and exchanges

Preceptorships Nursing students are assigned to a clinical experience for a 13-week period and immersed in the clinical environment in a specific community context.


Education students receive 27 weeks of offcampus practicum experience, teaching in multiple settings, such as elementary and secondary schools. That’s more than twice the amount of time required for teacher certification in Alberta.

Does heading to Australia, Germany, Japan, Korea, Mexico, the United Kingdom or the United States interest you? uLethbridge has exchange programs, summer study tours and international internships.
