Co-operative Education (Co-op) integrates academic study with relevant, supervised, paid work experience. It is based on the principle that relevant work experience, combined with academic programs, plays an important part in the effective professional and personal development of students. Students alternate periods of academic study with periods of applicable work experience. Please contact the appropriate faculty for details.
Co-op Programs are available currently in Applied Science, Arts, Forestry, Commerce and Business Administration, Kinesiology, Land and Food Systems, and Science. The Co-op offices in these faculties provide career coaching, help in sourcing potential employers, arranging interviews, supervising work terms, and generally managing the Co-op experience.
