Learn by doing

Agency projects go hand in hand with your e-learning experience.

As part of The Egg Creative Agency, you will take on a number of projects in the pathway you are currently exploring. This will compliment your e-learning coursework, enabling you to apply your learning to real-world projects with real clients and Registered Student Organizations (RSOs).

Build your portfolio

Those real-world projects will translate into a career-ready portfolio created throughout your eggducation.

Take your marketing and communication learning and apply it to client projects, providing you with a personal and shared team portfolio that you will continuously add your work to throughout the program.

Achieve your goals

This program is a professional development opportunity and creative incubator.

In our program, you will develop a career plan aligning with your employment track and chosen pathways. You are also welcome to explore as many guest tracks (other agency tracks outside your employment track) and pathways as you desire in collaboration with other area supervisors. We will work with you to determine how you can apply these skills to projects in our program, even if this is something different than your current track or major.
