Program outline

What to expect

The program consists of 15 courses which can be completed in approximately one year if taken on a full-time basis and starting in the Winter term. Evening and daytime classes are held predominantly at the Interurban campus and the program can be taken on a part-time basis.

Internship Option 

Apply your classroom skills in the workplace and bring your workplace skills back to the classroom! An Internship work term is a great opportunity to gain work experience in your field while enrolled in your academic program. 

When you engage in co-operative education, you get an early start on preparing for your career after graduation! You will be joining a growing number of students who choose the opportunity to alternate between full-time studies and full-time paid work where you can bring your applied classroom learning to life.

Co-operative education is a learner-centered model that empowers you, the student, to direct your own learning and to make a valuable contribution in the workplace. Your learning will be guided and supported by both your employer and the School with a faculty member from your program assigned to coach, monitor, and evaluate your work term development.

To participate in Co-operative Education, prior to your first work term you will need to successfully complete

  • Complete all courses, with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (C+), and
  • the workshop series CDEV-WPS

Talk to your Co-op & Internship Coordinator, or login to the Co-op and Career Portal to book a Co-op Information Appointment with an Employment Facilitator to get more information. Connect with your Academic Advisor to plan your program and how co-operative education can fit. 

Together you determine what timeline is most appropriate for you to take the mandatory Career Development-Workplace Preparation Skills (CDEV-WPS) course before your first work term.

International students

Under Canadian Immigration Law, as an international student you are eligible to participate in co-operative education and you can legally work in Canada during specified work terms.  The Work Permit Checklist for international students will assist in planning your participation in co-operative education.
