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

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

Co-op Academic Advisor:  Dr. Alan Doucette alan.doucette@dal.ca

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, or in Combined Honours or Double Major programs. 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.
