Co-op, Minors, Certificates and Engineering Concurrent Programs for Students - Co-operative Education Program (Science Co-op) in Environmental Science

Co-operative Education Program (Science Co-op) in Environmental Science

Co-op Academic Advisor:  Dr. Tarah Wright

Science Co-op is a program where academic study in a science subject is combined with paid career-related work experience. Students undertake three work-terms interspersed with their academic study terms. Science Co-op degree programs enable students to apply their knowledge directly while providing them with work experience that assists in making educated career choices.

Science Co-op is available to students in BSc (120 credit hour) Honours or Major programs in Environmental Science, or in Combined Honours or Double Major programs with Environmental Science as the primary subject. The number of students admitted into Science Co-op each year is limited. A minimum GPA of 3.00 is required for admission and for continuation in the Co-op program. Students must be eligible to work in Canada.

Students normally apply to join Science Co-op during their first year of study. Students must apply before April 15, and it is strongly recommended that interested students meet with their Departmental Co-op advisor early in the Winter term of their first year. If accepted into Science Co-op, students must register for, and attend the Science Co-op Seminar Series (SCIE 2800.00) at least four months prior to the first work term.
