The Knowledge Economy
This module builds on the internship all Arts and Sciences students undertake before their final year.
External speakers and UCL staff with roles outside UCL - in industry and the non-profit sector – will lead sessions on the way knowledge is produced, applied and valued in business and global contexts.
The module is structured largely around seminars, workshops and activities.
Students will engage with the process of how to apply their learning on Arts and Sciences to the next step in their career. Particular emphasis is placed on the student’s individual interdisciplinary experience in combining Arts/Humanities and Sciences/Engineering. Practical sessions in CV building and interview techniques are also offered.
Students will be asked to reflect on both the work placements from which they have recently returned and some of the key attributes/skills they have learned in the Core of the degree and their Pathways.
The results of such reflection will be manifested by pieces of writing, video work, group project work or students themselves leading seminars.
This is taught in Term 1 of Year 3.
- Case studies to be presented by individual speakers detailing their interdisciplinary career paths or paths of those with whom they manage/work
- Students to engage in interactive sessions involving setting up of business models, marketing, operational processes, consideration of global/political issues
- UCL Careers to be involved in sessions on CV writing and interview techniques
- Role of leadership and value-driven career choices to be explored
