Science Co-op grows again – welcome Psychology Co-op!

May 26, 2020 — 

For the past two-plus years, Science Co-op has expanded the breadth of Science undergraduate degree programs which offer co-op, the geographical scope of co-op employers, the number of co-op placements and the number of participating students. Science Co-op is growing again with the addition of Psychology Co-op!

In partnership with the Faculty of Arts Co-op Program, co-op is now available to undergraduate Psychology Major students in both the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science.

In Psychology, students study human behaviour and cognition to explore the ways people act as individuals and in groups. Students participate in areas such as research methodology, development, social psychology, learning, perception, cognition, neuropsychology, physiological psychology, personality, psychopathology and organizational behaviour. Psychology students develop strong analytical, statistical and research skills. They gain a broad education with the emphasis on psychological theory and methodology with an empirical basis in their course work and a focus on experimentation and projects.

With Psychology Co-op, participating students will have the opportunity to gain degree related work experience, build their professional networks and develop the critical interpersonal skills needed to succeed in the workplace. Co-op will allow Psychology major students to gain applied skills and insights to prepare them in their career development or for graduate studies.

Application for Psychology Co-op (Science) is currently open and will close on June 1, 2020.  To learn more about Science Co-op, eligibility requirements and application process, please visit this page.
