With the Political Science Co-op degree, students graduate with the equivalent of one year of full-time compensated employment related to their field of study and career objectives.
While the Co-op degree is slightly longer (usually one semester) than the regular Political Science degree, the academic content of the Co-op program is identical to that of the regular degree.
Most positions of employment are situated in the Montreal area; however, students who do not speak French must be prepared to work in other parts of Canada. Students can increase the diversity of employment options by applying to jobs across the country and international placements are also a possibility.
For more information on the structure and expectations of the Co-op program, visit the students section of the Institute for Co-operative Education.
