Participation in the Co-operative Education program - which enables students to acquire knowledge, practical skills for employment, and workplace experience - is optional for full-time Master's and PhD students. Master's students complete two work terms and PhD students complete three (a work term consists of four months of full-time, paid employment). Students require permission from their academic adviser and graduate adviser, as well as the co-op co-ordinator, to participate in the co-op program. Interested students should contact the Psychology Co-op office before the second week of their first term. Students are also referred to General Regulations: Graduate Co-op.
