The co-op/field experience program is a unique form of education that integrates classroom study with mostly paid, planned and supervised work experience in the public and private sectors. Your work experience supplements your classroom learning with practical workplace skills as you participate in the reality of the world of work, thereby increasing your self-confidence, career direction and understanding of your chosen profession. Each co-op/field experience course has two components: Work Experience and Seminar Class. Learn more below:
Both co-op and internships are forms of on-the-job learning that provide students with the opportunity to gain experience, apply knowledge learned in the classroom to real-world situations, and acquire key skills required to enter into a particular career field. Students can use these experiences to determine if they have an interest in a particular career and to create a network of contacts.
