WGST Co-op Program Option

Students taking the Co-operative Education Option will do a work term at the end of Year 2 (May-August).  They will then do another co-op work term in the winter semester of their third year of study (January-April). Their final work term will be done at the end of their third year of study (May-August).  One Co-op work term must occur in a Fall or Winter semester as pursuant to the national standards set out by the Canadian Association of Co-operative Education.  A fourth optional work term is available and would be completed at the end of Year 4 (May-August).

Because students will be doing work term #2 during an academic semester, it will typically take students one semester longer to complete their degree: 4.5 years versus 4 years.  Courses required to complete the program will be taken in the extra Fall semester of their fifth year.
